End Funeral Charges for Children in Scotland

No family dealing with the traumatic experience of losing a child should have to think about funeral costs. Yet, in 21st century Scotland, families who have lost children can still be asked to pay such costs.

The situation is made all the worse with families being charged different amounts depending on where they live.

The Welsh Government has already taken action to end child burial fees, and the Prime Minister has announced that the UK Government will scrap them in England too.

It is time the Scottish Government followed suit and abolished this unfair and unethical practice.
