Ordering a Pebble

If you would like to order a pebble to place in the Bedfordshire Sands Memorial Garden in memory of your baby, please contact us at bedfordshire@sands.org.uk so that we can get this arranged for you. 

To help ensure the garden is kept well maintained, we kindly request that no other objects (flowers, candles, toys etc.) are left in the garden. These will eventually be removed by a member of staff at the Crematorium or a committee member. We apologies for inconvenience this may cause.
 

Whilst we endeavour to provide the pebbles free of charge, we would greatly appreciate any voluntary donations to support our ongoing projects and to help the upkeep of the Memorial Garden. The project we are currently fundraising for, is to soundproof the ‘Forget Me Not’ bereavement suite at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital

Optional donations can be made at the 'Soundproof the 'forget Me Not' Bereavement Suite Just Giving Page'
