Babies Remembrance Service at Thornhill Crematorium
A special Babies Remembrance Service is to be held at 11.30am on June 30 in the Wenallt Chapel at Thornhill Crematorium.

The memorial service is supported by the Stillbirth and Neonatal Deaths Society (Sands) and will be led by members of the University Hospital of Wales Chaplaincy.

Cabinet Member with responsibility for Bereavement Services, Cllr Michael Michael, said:  “This simple service provides a caring and supportive environment for families who have experienced the sad loss of a baby, giving them the chance to come together in remembrance.”

Heatherjane Coombs, Chair of Cardiff & Newport Sands, said:  “We’re proud to work alongside Cardiff Bereavement Services in putting together this wonderful service enabling parents to remember their babies.  We understand how devastating it is when a baby dies and members of the group will be on hand to provide support after if you would like to speak to someone”

Memory cards can be written during the service and afterwards there will be an opportunity to place a memory pebble in the memory bowl in the Ilex Garden.
