This page contains details of Compassionate Friends' memorial sites around the UK (and others which TCF members have established) which you can visit.
The Compassionate Friends Garden in Perth was unveiled at the Scottish Gathering - a supportive weekend for bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents - in May 2018. All at The Compassionate Friends are so grateful to the charity, Beautiful Perth, for providing us a wonderfully tranquil and stunning garden to remember our precious sons and daughters.
The TCF Memorial Garden is over the River Tay from the main town of Perth and situated just off the Dundee Road at Rodney Gardens. There is a car park called Riverside Gardens as marked and the TCF gardens are to the right of the car park.
If you do go to Perth please take a visit - it is a lovely, really special place.
At the City of London Cemetery
In Memory of All Children
This public Memorial Angel is in memory of children of all ages who depart before their time. It stands in the City of London Cemetery by the Baby Garden.
It was created with much help and support from Dr. I. Hussain who at the time was the director of the Cemetery and his colleagues.
After much fundraising by Frances and Mike Speakman, together with family and friends, and helped enormously by The Compassionate Friends, the beautiful Memorial Angel was unveiled on 26th April 2009.
Frances and Mike hope that the Memorial, which overlooks the Baby Garden, will bring some comfort to grieving parents with the knowledge that they are not so alone in their sorrow and the memory of their children will always be cherished.
It is best to enter the Cemetery by the Main Gate where there are always staff on show and also a small office with someone always on duty. If you are unable to find the Angel, they will take you there. Also kept in the cupboard, in the small gate office in a grey filing cabinet is a Book, (pink, with butterflies on the cover) where you can sign and put your thoughts down. Please ask the staff to find it for you.
