INFANT & CHILDREN'S FUND

 

At Heritage Funeral & Cremation, we understand that few things are more devastating than the death of a child. Parents having lost an infant can experience physical emotions with symptoms like muscular problems, stomach issues, and even heart problems. They may eat all the time or, at the other end of the spectrum, have no appetite whatsoever. Some mothers have been quoted as saying that the "ache to hold my baby" could be felt in their arms as well as deep down inside.


We understand and we empathize. That's why, at absolutely no cost to the family, we perform infant funerals/cremations for babies one year old and under.


About Our Funerals for Babies


When we say that our infant funerals will be done at no charge, that's exactly what we mean. This includes all funeral and cemetery (or cremation) expenses. While other firms claim to provide infant services at no charge, more times than not, they are simply agreeing to waive the fees for their service. Any and all things associated with it must still be paid for by the family.


How Heritage Funeral & Cremation Can Help


If you have lost an infant, our condolences are beyond measure. As detailed here, we have no intention of charging you for the funeral, cremation, service, etc. of your child one year or younger.
Some individuals have insisted upon paying for something, even though they will not be charged. In cases such as these, we do have a suggestion:
Occasionally there is a neighboring plot in the cemetery that has no marker. The family associated with it couldn't afford one. If a deceased infant’s family wishes to pay for something, we respectfully suggest a marker for a neighboring plot. We have experienced an outstanding response to this program, particularly around the holidays.


Why Should You Work with Heritage for Funerals for Babies?

 

From the very beginning, we have been passionate about providing free services in the case of infant deaths. This is a conviction that we have held throughout the years and has nothing to do with whether or not a family can afford a lavish funeral or not.
We go a step above and beyond many other funeral homes in that, when we say your baby's entire funeral will be paid for, we mean it. Other funeral homes may try to charge families for goods and amenities after providing the service at no cost. That won't happen here! We cover the urn/casket, florals, register book, and any other circumstances-related cemetery expenses.
