All ages welcome

We acknowledge that after the loss of a child it can be painful to see other children. Please remember that children present at the service have suffered the loss of a brother or sister or may be subsequent births. Parents who have children in attendance are sensitive to the fact that there are newly-bereaved families present. We all attend the service for the same reason: to honor the babies we so dearly miss.
