The garden commemorates all those children buried in unmarked graves within the West Terrace Cemetery.  It is named in honour of Caroline Clark, the 19th century philanthropist and children's rights campaigner. A plaque was placed in the garden in July 2015 listing the names of some of those children who were buried in unmarked graves in the cemetery.
