Tree planted in memory of infants who have died from Sudden Infant Death Dyndrome (SIDS). 

(SIDS), also known as cot death, is a diagnosis that's made when an apparently healthy baby dies, without warning, and for no clear reason.  When a baby dies suddenly, doctors and investigators try to find out why. This includes a post-mortem examination, seeing where the baby died, and a review of the baby's medical notes. 

In less than half of all cases of SIDS, a health condition, illness or accident is found to be the cause.  SIDS is rare, but it is still the most common cause of death in newborn babies.
