Arranging a funeral

Stillborn babies must be buried or cremated. You can choose to organise a funeral yourself, or the hospital can do it for you.

If the stillbirth didn’t happen at hospital, your local hospital can still arrange a funeral for you. Your midwife will be able to contact them about this.

Detailed information about all the options available to you is available from SANDS – Stillbirth And Neonatal Death Society.
