website title


Derby Sands is a volunteer led Group that works to promote Sands’ vision in our area.

We provide direct peer support to bereaved parents, we work with local healthcare professionals to promote their access to Sands’ materials and training and we raise awareness about stillbirth and neo-natal death to help break the silence about this tragedy.

We are fortunate enough to have a wonderful memorial garden at Markeaton Crematorium (Markeaton lane, Derby DE22 4NH), it is a place for quiet reflection where petals are placed on our bespoke sculptures, to remember our precious angels. 

We also run regular support meetings, every second Tuesday of the month (except for August) at the: WEA, The Mill, Lodge Ln, Derby DE1 3HB  

If you are interested in what we do, need some support or have a question, one of our trained befrienders will be in there:
