Q: We don’t have a lot of money. Does Guam Memorial Park & Funeral Home offer any assistance or have a program for families who are low-income?

Q: We need to make arrangements for a baby. How much is a funeral for a baby?
A: Guam Memorial Park & Funeral Home gives special consideration to families who have lost an infant less than one year of age. We provide an infant burial space (including endowed care fee), which includes an outer burial container that surrounds the casket (required) for a modest cost. As a courtesy, we will provide free labor to open and close this grave (weekdays only, holidays not included). We can also provide special funeral service prices for infants which includes a casket and just the level of service you request.

Your Memorial Counselor can assist you in arranging a funeral ceremony that honors your affiliation.
