Baby and Child Remembrance Service

9:59 am  //  25th November 2021

The chaplaincy team and bereavement midwives at Ormskirk hospital hold a memorial service every December for anyone who has experienced the loss of a baby or child.

Due to ongoing coronavirus restrictions, the usual service is not possible in the hospital’s baby garden.

Instead, the service will be held at West Lancashire crematorium and will be led by members of the hospital team accompanied by the Salvation Army Band and local singers.

There will be a Christmas tree of remembrance, and parents will be invited to put baubles with the name of their baby or child to be remembered with love on the tree. The baubles will later be moved to the baby garden at Ormskirk hospital.

Please contact the spiritual care and chaplaincy team if you would like to write the name of your loved one on a bauble and hang it on the tree in the baby garden at Ormskirk hospital or the garden of reflection at Southport hospital. Email soh-tr.chaplains@nhs.net or call 01704 704639. Alternatively, you can contact Jo Unsworth, Bereavement Midwife at joanneunsworth@nhs.net or call 01704 705358.

The service, remembering a loss at any time, will take place at West Lancashire crematorium on Wednesday 8 December at 6.30pm. There will be light refreshments on arrival.
