We have a memorial garden for babies and children at Aldershot Crematorium.

Refurbishment of the crematorium

We are about to carry out a major refurbishment of the Aldershot Crematorium and this will last until Spring 2025.

All funeral services are now being held at the chapels in Redan Road Cemetery. Cremations are continuing to take place at the crematorium. Our crematorium grounds are still open for visitors, but the hall of remembrance is closed. Our books of remembrance are available online.

Find out more by visiting our Refurbishment of Aldershot Crematorium page.

About the memorial garden for babies and children

Our beautiful baby and children's memorial garden was created by Farnborough SANDS, the charity which supports people affected by the loss of a child at any stage.

The garden was made possible thanks to the fundraising efforts of Farnborough SANDS members, generous donations from individuals and businesses, Rushmoor Borough Council and a grant from the Farnborough airport community environmental fund

It was opened in July 2016 and we received the South East in Bloom Judges' Award the following year.

Garden design

The design features gentle curving paths that take the visitor on a journey through light feathery planting.

Plants have been carefully chosen to attract wildlife and provide year-round interest. Specimen trees and shrubs have brought structure and shelter to the area.

The garden includes modern sculptures, a moon bed where engraved pebbles can be laid, curved benches and a memorial wall, where visitors can light a candle for their loved one.

We will not be scattering any cremated remains in the memorial garden. After careful discussion with SANDS, we have agreed to keep the garden as an area of remembrance and we will keep our special woodland scattering area for that purpose.

We will be happy to show you the location of the woodland area in our grounds. If you want to scatter cremated remains, you will need to make an appointment, as we have to record the day, time and location of where scatterings take place.
