Rename the Children's Section of Altona Memorial Park to the Garden of Little Angels

Our son died upon his birth over a year ago and we buried him at the Altona Memorial Park in their "Children's Section".

After visiting other parts of the Altona Memorial Park we quickly realised that everything had been given wonderful names, for example; Garden of Music, Elm Lawn, Court of Memories, Wren Lawn, Lavender Garden and so on, no other section was titled after the group that was buried there.

This is when we decided that the name needed to change, it is too impersonal and the ones that were buried there deserved a lot more, so after lots of phone calls we were told by the Regional Manager that we are only the second people to ever have an issue with the title of "Children's Section" and it would not be worth perusing any further as we would also need to take it to the Board of the Trust......hence our decision to get more people to have an issue with calling an area of a cemetery after the group of such precious people buried there and have it renamed to "Garden of Little Angels".

Help us make a change in honour of those that we lay to rest there....
