A charity which supports bereaved parents to help them have the funeral and memorial of their wishes for their precious baby or child.
Tyler’s Friends Aims are to ensure a better working practice between medical and funeral professionals to make sure parents get their wishes.
Tyler Landon Lunn was born sleeping on the 13th June 2009 when he was just over 21 weeks gestation. Tyler had a full funeral in Lytchett Minster Parish Church where family and friends came together to say goodbye to future dreams that his parents had started to plan for him. His service was followed by a burial in Poole Cemetery, in the Forget Me Not Garden, which is one of two areas for children’s graves.
Tyler’s parents were young and not having much money, couldn’t afford a memorial to mark Tyler’s grave. So for 5 years, despite efforts to find the money, this seemed impossible. This when Tyler’s Friends charity was created – to help Tyler’s parents and others in a similar situation.
