Funerals for babies in Brisbane

Caring Baby Funeral Directors

Tony Hollands Funerals specialise in funeral arrangements and Services for Children, Infants and Babies including stillborn babies and babies born under 20 weeks gestation. Our caring and compassionate staff understands that arranging a funeral for your child is one of the most difficult tasks a parent and other family members will ever have to undertake. Holding a Funeral Service for your Baby/Infant is a beautiful, personal way of saying goodbye. It allows you and your family the opportunity to honour and to pay tribute to your baby’s life in a way that is unique and significant to you. It’s important to say goodbye to assist in facilitating your grieving and to provide an opportunity for your healing to begin.

You are legally required to register the death and Cremate or Bury in Queensland if your baby was born at 20 weeks gestation or over. A funeral service can be organised and attended by you or, you can organise an unattended funeral. If you have a miscarriage before 20 weeks gestation, you can choose to still hold a service if you wish, however, it is not a legal requirement to register.

As Funeral Directors, we will assist you with holding a funeral service. You will need to decide whether you want to have your baby buried or cremated, to have a service in a Chapel, Church or at the Graveside. You will also need to decide whether a Minister or Funeral Celebrant will be conducting the service. Once you have decided on the above, you will need to decide whether you will be holding a viewing/dressing of your baby and whether this is a private ceremony or one to invite your family and friends.
