Baby Remembrance Services

Baby Remembrance Services for all who have suffered the loss of a child, no matter how long ago, are being held on:

  • Sunday 15th October at the Chapel of the Holy Cross Level 2, Conquest Hospital at 3.00pm
  • Wednesday 18th October in the Chapel of Christ the Healer at Eastbourne DGH at 2.00pm

The services are for remembering and sharing with all welcome to attend. They are a simple act of remembrance conducted by the respective hospital chaplain.

Rev Dennis Nolan, Hospital Chaplain at Conquest Hospital said: “Many of those who have lost a baby or suffered a miscarriage experience grief for many years afterwards. This act of remembrance is a way of sharing that grief with relatives, friends and those who have suffered a similar experience.”

Rev Graham Atfield, Hospital Chaplain at Eastbourne DGH said: “At these services in the past we have met people who have attended these services many years, sometimes decades, after suffering their loss. It shows how enduring such losses can be and we hope that it can help them to move forward in the process of grieving.”

There will be tea, coffee and biscuits available afterwards and an opportunity to talk to a Chaplain and a representative from the Local Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society) Group.
