Over 500 guests attended the 2017 Children’s Christmas Remembrance Service held at Springvale Botanical Cemetery on 3 December. Delivered in partnership with Andrews Funeral Care, this was an opportunity for family and friends to bring the spirit of Christmas to their children’s special resting place and reflect on the precious lives no longer with us.

The service, conducted by Celebrant Susan Bent was complemented with songs led by Keenan Te and Imogen Spendlove. This moving annual event provides a caring and comforting atmosphere, giving everyone within our community a safe place to reflect upon their children alongside others experiencing the grief of losing a child.
