Chesterfield crematorium is to host events for parents and families who have lost babies.

The annual baby memorial service will take place at 2pm on Sunday.

The non-religious service will remember all babies who have died before, during or after birth and will feature live music, poems and opportunities to light candles.

This will be followed by a balloon release in the Never Land memorial garden in the grounds of the crematorium.

Next Wednesday sees the international wave of light service take place in the Never Land memorial garden.

There will be a procession into the garden where everyone will be invited to light a candle. People should bring along a lantern for the procession.

There will be live music, poems, a dedication tree and activities for children.

The events are organised by the Chesterfield SANDS group.
