Saying Goodbye Candle Lighting Events

This is a chance for the Saying Goodbye team to light a candle for people who may not be able to get along to a service, but want their baby to be honoured and remembered in this special way. There is no restriction on how many candles a family can request, as each baby lost deserves to be remembered, so if a family have lost three babies they can request three candles to be lit.

If you would like the Saying Goodbye team to light a candle in remembrance of your lost baby (or a family members baby), simply email us with the name of the baby or the date the baby was lost.

Please put the following in the subject line: National candle lighting event

We are now holding one National Candle Lighting event each year, and the 2020 lighting will take place at Ely Cathedral in November.

Here are two short films recorded at the 2015 candle lighting events. (Please be aware that this is amateur footage, and is not professionally recorded.)
