Baby Memorial Garden

Baby Memorial Garden

 The Baby Memorial Garden (BMG) is situated in a small wooded glade in Taunton Deane Cemetery. The garden is secluded and affords time for personal contemplation.

The chaplaincy department at Musgrove Park Hospital arranges for the burial of babies lost through miscarriage or at an early stage of pregnancy, to take place in the garden. During these burials a simple non-denominational service is conducted by one of the Hospital Chaplains. This happens on the second Wednesday of the month at 9.15am. The cremated remains of very young babies may also be buried here. 

The garden is being improved and updated with some tasteful statues which tell a story designed to help children come to terms with the loss of a sibling. There is a story book available to support this – “Dear Mum”. 

All burials which take place in the baby memorial garden, but not the exact location, are entered into the records held by the crematorium.
