Chair of trustees Ian Cotterill said: "Our fourth annual Remember Me day was a huge success and a wonderful opportunity for the young people families we work with to meet and remember loved ones.

"We were delighted to welcomed the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire Sarah Beazley to our event as well as a group of local dancers who provided some of the entertainment."
