Charity hopes to raise funds to build memorial garden for stillborn children

A charity is looking to raise £17,000 to build the garden at Aldershot Crematorium to allow parents who have lost children a pleasant place to remember them

Parents who have lost a baby can soon find solace in an Aldershot garden, thanks to a charity’s efforts.

The Farnborough branch of Stillborn and Neonatal Death charity (Sands) is fundraising for the £17,000 needed to create a beautiful and peaceful memory garden at Aldershot Crematorium.

Chairman Laura Kirk said it will offer families a place to go to reflect and will include seated areas, colourful plants, trees and an area for engraved stones to be placed.

There will also be a wall where people can light a candle in memory of a baby.

“It will be an area for reflection but information will also be available about the group, so hopefully more parents can access help because often they don’t know what is out there,” said Ms Kirk, a former bereavement midwife at Frimley Park Hospital.

“One of our members is a garden designer and we were given the opportunity to use some space at the crematorium to build a baby memorial garden.”

The garden will be open to anyone and Ms Kirk said it could especially help those who suffered historic losses and may not know what sex their child was, and where the remains are now.

Some funding will be provided by Rushmoor Borough Council, Ms Kirk added, but the details are yet to be confirmed. In the meantime, the charity is holding fundraising events to ensure the work can be paid for.

The next is Dolly’s Vintage and Handmade Fair at Oakley Village Hall in Basingstoke, on Sunday September 20.

It is hoped the garden will be finished early next year, and the group wants to draw out the design on the 30ft by 10ft plot this month.

A local sculptor is also being sought to create a piece of art for the area.
