Memorial Services

Aberdeen SANDS in conjunction with the chaplains from NHS Grampian hold some annual events in which you can remember your baby along with others whose babies have also died.

Summer Event


We usually organise a summer event in June to mark SANDS awareness month. Dates can be found in the Events page.

Christmas Memorial Service


Christmas can be a particularly difficult time for families so to provide some comfort a short memorial service is held in Dec in the chapel at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.


There are 2 services the first being a quiet service with no children present then a second service for families. The services are open to anyone who has been affected by the loss of a baby.


Dates of these services can be found on the events page.
