DG Sands working with D&G Council to create a designated baby memorial at St Michaels

D&G Sands are working in conjunction with the Council to create a designated baby memorial garden at the current St. Michaels site.  The plan is to create a peaceful, attractive garden where parents can go to gently remember their sadly lost baby. The plan is to improve the site and provide more areas where name plaques can be placed as the current site is almost filled up. There will be nothing placed on top of current burial sites.

 Other Sands groups have been very successful in creating a beautiful memorial garden within the free ground provided by the council. Worked on proposals will be posted the website. We hope that all parents support the much needed improvements and welcome the joint work with the council as a positive step for all bereaved families.

Next Support Meeting

The next support group meeting is planned for

  • 7th November: 7.30pm

and we welcome anyone touched by the death of a baby to join us.

The meeting will be held at our office at 107 Irish Street Dumfries.

Many people feel that only others who have experienced the death of a baby can offer real understanding of the pain and heartbreak that they are feeling and the support group meetings allow you to connect with other bereaved parents, grandparents and others who share your pain and loss.

The support group is an informal setting and is only attended by people who themselves have lost a baby or their families. You will not be pressured to speak and sometimes it’s nice just to simply come along and listen.

If anyone would like more information about these meetings or would like to express an interest in attending then please email [email protected]
