    The Children’s Funeral Fund for England: The Children’s Funeral Fund for England (CFF) is a scheme to provide funding for the fees charged for any burial or cremation of a child under the age of 18 or stillborn after 24 weeks of pregnancy. The fund also covers certain associated expenses. Claims can be made for child funerals taking place in England on or after 23 July 2019. All claims must be submitted within 6 months of the date of the funeral. There are no nationality or residency requirements. Funding is available regardless of the income of the child’s parents, guardian or carer.
