    I don't think it's rude, but you may have to "read the room". How do the family and friends of the deceased feel about it?

    Yes unless it is the baby of the person who died.

    The funeral is about a family paying their respects to someone who has died. They do not want a screaming or disruptive child interrupting the ceremony.

    If you want to go and pay your respects ask a relative or friend to look after the child so you can attend. If that is not possible simply explain to the bereaved you can't make it as you can't get a child minder, but your thoughts are with them.

    I can't think of anything worse than attending a funeral and have a baby crying or playing up during the ceremony.

    Not really.  The parents want to pay their respects.  Maybe they couldn't get a sitter.

      Not in UK if it is a church ceremony you either arrange child care or don't go.
