"Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven, where the love of our lost ones pours through, and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy" (Anon)

The law on scatterings ashes in the UK is fairly relaxed and there is nothing explicit in the legislation to restrict people in disposing of cremated ashes.

You may choose to scatter or bury the ashes of your loved one in your own garden; on a family grave; at the crematorium or somewhere else that was special to them and to you.

I can help you by signposting you to information about getting any permission you may need to scatter or bury ashes on someone else’s land.

Many families are happy to gather informally to scatter the ashes of their loved ones. Others wish this to be a more formal occasion, a final farewell marked with ceremony and symbolism.

If you wish to have a ceremony, I can help you to plan the details. We can discuss music, readings or poetry. I can write a tribute to your loved one, based on your memories of them. I can lead the ceremony for you if you wish, or write a ceremony for you to lead yourself.
