Forget-Me-Not Garden

Working in collaboration with renowned sculptor and landscape architect, Philippe Handford, Fylde Borough Council, Blackpool Victoria Hospitals NHS Trust, Blackpool and Preston Sands, the charity for stillborn and neonatal death and local bereaved families, Fable Arts helped to create the Forget-Me-Not Infant Memorial Garden at Lytham Park Cemetery.

The garden, which opened at the end of June 2015, is a calm and meaningful space in which families can acknowledge, reflect and remember the baby they have lost. It features a sculpted oak tree, textual installations and benches within a bespoke garden design.

The garden design encourages individual and personal connections through the use of evocative words and phrases that have been chosen by members of Blackpool and Preston Sands, whilst the commissioned remembrance tree sculpture, created from steel, copper, perspex, cobbles and oak, enables families to leave a permanent memorial to their lost children in the form of an engraved copper leaf.
