We wanted to let you know the very special reason why we are called Evelyn.

Evelyn Kay Rose is my sister and her husband’s first daughter. Tragically she died just after she was born on 27th October 2011. It was a very sad and difficult time for them and for our whole family.

One of the many sorrows when a baby dies is finding ways to keep their memory alive. For us it seemed fitting that we named our business after a little girl who is always loved, never forgotten. Now we get to say her name all the time and celebrate in the face of unspeakable loss the mark she left upon this earth.

My sister has written a moving blog about her experiences which you can read more about here.

Oxfordshire Sands provided compassionate and sensitive support during the subsequent years. To find out more about the amazing and valuable work of Sands click here.
