Policy Statement relating to the Cremation of Babies and Infants

With the support of the Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities and the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management, the Scottish Government’s National Committee on Infant Cremation has developed and approved a Policy Statement on Infant Cremation. This statement has been developed in response to the recommendations of Lord Bonomy’s Infant Cremation Commission and sets out a clear standard approach for each Cremation Authority in Scotland for this sensitive process. A copy of the Policy Statement can be viewed here.
