Children's funeral fund

Information for parents about how to access the children's funeral fund.

The children's funeral fund allows for fees for burial to be claimed directly by the burial authority if the child was more than 24 weeks gestation and is under 18 years of age.

We do not charge burial fees for children 16 years and younger. 

Memorial permit fees may also be claimed back.

Claims must be made within 6 months of the funeral.

Please visit the website for more information about the fund and how to access it.
