Families are invited to attend an annual service to remember babies who have died prematurely or suddenly.

It will be held on Saturday, November 13th, at 3pm at South Shields Crematorium on John Reid Road and be led by the chaplaincy team from South Tyneside District Hospital.

Memorial books which record the names of babies will be on view and there will also be a memory tree upon which family members can hang messages. 

The tree will be moved to the hospital chapel nearer to Christmas for more people to leave messages in memory of loved ones.

Pat Bealing, who is a member of the chaplain team, will be among those to help lead the service.

She said: “We know families have found this to be a comfort when they have come and have remarked how much it has helped them on their journey.”
