Baby memorial garden

Tucked away in a secluded location within Taunton cemetery, the baby memorial garden allows for quiet contemplation in a peaceful setting. It is specifically designed with children in mind so that people of all ages can mourn the loss of a loved one in a comfortable environment.

There are a number of carefully chosen memorial options available so please speak to our team if you wish to discuss the memorial and design options available to you.

Located in the garden is a post box to encourage everyone to write letters to those they wish to remember.

The garden is complemented by the 'Dear Mum' booklet which can be provided upon request from the Bereavement Services Team.

A memorial service is held on the second Wednesday of every month at 9:15am following the loss of a baby, please contact your Chaplain at Musgrove Park Hospital for more information.

Alternatively, you may wish to arrange for a private service where your baby can be laid to rest in their own space with a plaque laid for dedication. The Bereavement Services Team can provide advice on this, or your Chaplain can assist you.
