In the letter, co-written with the Chief Executive of Child Bereavement UK Ann Chalmers, Kate and Ann explain how the cost of a funeral imposes a crippling and unmanageable financial burden on bereaved parents, during what is an already impossible time.

With £10 million a year, the government could create a Children’s Funeral Fund, and help relieve a considerable financial burden on grieving parents.
We believe families should be able to bury their loved ones with dignity, without having to worry about how they will meet the cost.
