Our baby garden at Weston Mill cemetery is a communal burial area for babies less than one month old, stillborn babies and non-viable fetuses. The garden provides families with a place to find peace and tranquillity for moments of quiet reflection.
At all baby burials the graves are dressed with artificial grass mats. The only items allowed on the grassed area are fresh cut flowers. Once the burial has taken place your baby can't be exhumed and moved to another location. The burial of adults or the scattering of their cremated remains aren't allowed in the baby garden. We don't charge for a baby's burial in this area.
Book of Remembrance
The baby's Book of Remembrance is displayed in the Book of Remembrance room.
The book (two six monthly volumes) has a page allocated to each day of the year and the pages are turned daily so that the memorial entries can be seen on each anniversary. Entries are inscribed by skilled artists and you decide which date the entry is to appear on (usually the date of death).
To ensure the inscription can be seen on the next anniversary, we'll need to receive applications at least 6 months before the date of entry.
An entry to the Book of Remembrance is free for babies.
