Our Current Projects


Memorial Trees

To mark our 30th anniversary in 2018 we had a beautiful copper memorial love tree installed in the spiritual room at Crosshouse Hospital.  The tree holds little heart shaped brass plaques which are engraved with the name and date of a precious baby.

Due to the popularity of this tree and wanting to cover the South Ayrshire area as well, we have in summer of 2020 installed another tree in the spiritual room at Ayr Hospital.

If you would like a heart plaque placed of either of these trees please download and complete the memorial heart form below and email to  support@ayrshiresands.co.uk   There is a suggested donation of £10 each to cover the cost of the heart and engraving.


Knadgerhill Cemetery baby plots upgrade

We are currently in the process of cleaning and renovating the baby plot areas within Knadgerhill Cemetery, Irvine.

This will mean that the toys boxes that have been placed there to store toys & momentos will be removed to be repaired and treated.

The gardening areas will be attented to over time to tidy up the plants, trees and bushes.

The memorial stones will be cleaned.

Some memorial stones will also be removed whilst missing or damaged lettering is replaced.

Please bear with us while we try to improve these areas and make them a pleasant and peaceful place for us all to visit our babies.

Note: Due to COVID-19 some of the improvements have had to be postponed but will be resumed as soon as possible
