Please join us for a service of remembrance for all who have lost a little one, however long ago. You are very welcome to come on your own or to bring friends and family.


It's a beautiful service where there will be an opportunity to light a candle and write a message in TimeNorfolk’s book of remembrance as we remember our lost little ones.
