Around 70 people attended a service held for people affected by the baby ashes scandal in Aberdeen.
In 2013 it was revealed no ashes had been offered to the families of infants cremated at Hazlehead over a five-year period.
Baby and adult ashes were mixed together and given back to relatives of the adult, while the parents of infants were told there were no ashes.
The service was hosted by Aberdeen Churches Together at the Kirk of St Nicholas in the city centre.
The event, led by Rev Hugh Wallace, involved readings, prayers and singing from the choral group from St Andrew’s Episcopal Church Choir.
It also included an opportunity to light a candle in a meditation led by Rev Stephen Taylor, and a reflection given by Rev Dr John McNeill.
The service was concluded with a Celtic blessing.
Rev Wallace said support will continue to be made to the families affected by the scandal.
He said: “We are committed to supporting all those affected and the service was an important part of that. “We welcomed all who wished to take part but recognise everyone has their own needs at this sad time and our work with the families will continue.
“We appreciated that not everyone would feel that the service would be the best place for them today, so we are still available at any time for those who may wish to contact us.”
Aberdeen Churches Together was supported by Aberdeen City Council in inviting parents and other family members.
Aberdeen City Council chief executive Angela Scott, who spoke at the service, attended along with the Lord Provost of Aberdeen George Adam.
In June, the council was slammed in the National Cremation Investigation, led by former Lord Advocate Dame Elish Angiolini.
The inquiry said the most serious issues of the entire Scotland-wide investigation had taken place at the city’s Hazlehead Crematorium, run by the local authority.
