Special hospital memorial service to remember babies

A special annual memorial service for babies who have passed away is being held at Hereford County Hospital Chapel on Tuesday, July 5, starting at 7.30pm. 

Hereford County Hospital’s Chaplaincy is organising the service at Hereford County Hospital, Stonebow Road, in Hereford.  

Reverend Philip Roberts, hospital chaplain, said: "We would like to invite those who have lost a baby, whether recently or many years ago, to come and remember them with us at our annual memorial service.

“It is an important moment in the year when people are able to gather and remember their little ones with love”.

The service will be taken by the hospital chaplain, supported by maternity staff, and is open to any relative or friend who has been touched by the death of a baby.

For further information, the hospital chaplains can be contacted on 01432 364139 (please leave a message).
