Applications have opened for people who would like a plaque in the memorial garden at Hazlehead Park after the baby ashes scandal.
A 2015 investigation by Dame Elish Angiolini revealed ashes of infants and adults were routinely mixed at Hazlehead crematorium.
Some of the ashes were not returned to grieving parents, which she branded as “unethical and abhorrent practices”.
However, action has implemented in the intervening years to improve the facility and now work has started on a memorial garden.
It will feature an arched entrance, a sculpture and a private area where the families can sit and reflect, and also have the names of those affected permanently inscribed on rectangular-shaped metal plates.
Application forms are being sent to people who have already come forward to the council as part of the process, and they are also available from www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/memorialgarden.
Completed forms should be returned to the council’s bereavement services department by February 28.
Applications will be accepted after this date and there is no time limit for applying.
Anybody with queries or who wants to request a postal application should contact bereavement services on 01224 522485.
The work started last month and it should be completed this spring, weather and ground conditions depending.
