Dedicating a page in our Memory Book

Our Memory Books hold the names of all the children from Shooting Star Children’s Hospices who have died. We have a book at each hospice and since 2021, we have included the names of all of the children known to our care at both hospices.

We invite you to have a page in the Memory Book with a photo and words dedicated to your child. The page could include a photograph and a poem (or words of your choice). If you choose to have a page, our resident artist can decorate this for you. We ask you to let us know your child’s favourite colour or some illustrations that would be meaningful to you (e.g. hearts, stars or a favourite character like Winnie-the-Pooh), just as you wish. Or you may wish to take a page from the Memory Book to decorate yourself. It would then be bound back into the book.

We will ask you if you would like a page for your child when we invite you to our Memory Day. You should receive this invitation in the Spring, and the page would be ready for you when you attend our Memory Day in the summer. If you have a leaf on our Memory Tree at Christopher’s, your page will appear in the Memory Book placed in the Sanctuary at Christopher’s. If you have a star on our Memory Tree at Shooting Star House, your page will appear in the Memory Book placed in the Sanctuary at Shooting Star House.

We welcome you to visit the Memory Book and stars and leaves on the Memory Trees at times in the year that are special to you. We ask that you kindly let us know 7 days in advance so that we can make sure we can support you with this.
