A special service is to be held at Canterbury Cathedral today for people who have lost a baby during pregnancy, at birth or in infancy. The Saying Goodbye services will be held at Cathedrals and Minsters across the country.

They aim to remember and acknowledge the lives lost or cut short in a reflective event. The services are open to people of all faiths, or no faith, and are free to attend.
