The Sanctifying Function of the Church » Other Acts of Divine Worship » Ecclesiastical Funerals » Those to whom ecclesiastical funerals must be granted or denied
Canon 1183. §1 As far as funeral rites are concerned, catechumens are to be reckoned among Christ’s faithful.

§2 Children whose parents had intended to have them baptised but who died before baptism, may be allowed Church funeral rites by the local Ordinary.

§3 Provided their own minister is not available, baptised persons belonging to a non-catholic Church or ecclesial community may, in accordance with the prudent judgement of the local Ordinary, be allowed Church funeral rites, unless it is established that they did not wish this.
