A special service was held on Saturday at the Cathedral for those who have lost a baby either recently or a while ago.

During Baby Loss Awareness Week there will be a prayer station in the Cathedral for anyone who wants to drop in during regular opening times. One of the most famous historical figures associated with the Cathedral, Katharine of Aragon, herself experienced both stillbirth and neonatal death, with only one of her children surviving into adulthood.

The Cathedral will be lit up in blue and pink throughout this week.
