Arranging a cremation

Children's funerals

Baby funerals

If your baby was born or stillborn in a hospital, there will be staff there who can help and advise you with funeral arrangements. Often, the hospital will be able to recommend a funeral director to organise a baby funeral, but you can always make the arrangements with a funeral director of your choice or directly with us.


If the parents are residents of St Helens, there is no cremation fee for a child under the age of 16.

The cremated remains will be available for collection one working day after the cremation.

After the cremation, many options are available to you. These include taking the remains home with you, scattering them in the Memorial Garden or in our Garden of Remembrance (at St Helens or Newton-le-Willows Cemetery) or burying the remains into a grave.

For more information, please contact the St Helens Cemetery officer on 01744 677406.
