Baby book of remembrance

For the security of the irreplaceable baby memorial book, we keep the cabinet locked.

As there are memorials for different dates on each page, we don't turn the page daily. During office hours please ask a member of staff to turn the page for you.

To view your baby's memorial on Saturday afternoon or Sunday, please contact us during office hours.
