Open 2022

A place for bereaved families and friends to go to remember their child

Our History

The grounds have been donated by John and the garden will remain the property of the Children’s Round Chapel forever. Originally, the garden was just going to be a chapel (the round chapel) but this has been repeatedly knocked back by the council. However, the chapel will eventually be built, right in the centre of the Four Seasons Garden. It won’t be specific to one religion – in fact it will be more spiritual, so anyone can use it regardless of faith

Our Mission

Our mission is to:

Provide a peaceful, symbolic retreat for bereaved families to celebrate and remember their child
Raise awareness of child death issues along with prevention measures
Provide high quality emotional and physical support through our charity partner The Compassionate Friends

FAQs

Can cremated remains be laid to rest within the garden?

Ashes can be scattered above ground if the parents wish, but unfortunately no burials.

Will there be Individual private gardens?

There are no individual private gardens. The gardens are divided into two sections, each 1 acre. We’ve got the Four Seasons Garden and the Secret Orchard, which can only be accessed through the Four Seasons Garden

Will there be a lease time?

A Lease doesn’t apply. The grounds have been donated and the gardens will remain the property of the Children’s Round Chapel forever.

Is there any onsite Catering?

No on-site catering yet, however, we could potentially look at providing drinks and snacks in the future.

Do I need to book an appointment to visit?

All visitors must make an appointment, and we’re looking at a maximum of 2 families per appointment to give you the space that you need.

Is there parking?

There is car parking onsite, right next to the Gardens.

Can we help with a donation?

If you would like to donate towards the cost of thousands of plants, please visit our Just Giving page or support us through Amazon Smile.

Can the parent purchase a bench with a name engraved?

Parents can purchase a bench subject to our approval. We’d like to see details of the bench first. If they want to donate a plant, we’d prefer to provide a list of plants that we need so it fits with the landscaping
