Memorial service for babies in Chesterfield

A memorial event for babies which have passed away will be held at Chesterfield and District Crematorium on Sunday.

The annual baby memorial service is being held to remember all babies who have died before, during or after birth, and will feature live music, poems and candle lighting.

The 2pm service will be followed by a balloon release in the crematorium’s Never Land garden.

Another service, known as the wave of light, will be held on October 15 and those attending will be asked to light a candle and bring a lantern.
