The Welsh Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with local government to stop charging for the burial of children, ensuring there is a clear, fair and consistent approach across Wales. 

To support local authorities in making this step, the Welsh Government is making up to £1.5million available from November 2017 up to March 2020. The funding will also be available through all other providers of cemeteries and crematoria in Wales who agree not to charge on the same basis. 

Any queries or concerns, please contact your relevant local authority direct in the first instance.
