Scattering of Ashes
There may be moments you are unable to find the words – I will help, guide and support you.
Where you decide to lay your loved ones permanently to rest is sometimes a really hard decision. It can be an extremely meaningful, symbolic act, sometimes awfully sad but also incredibly moving and powerful.
There is no time limit to scattering the ashes after cremation, whatever you feel is the right decision for you.
What you decide to incorporate into the ceremony is completely up to you. You may want to sing or listen to their favourite song or read a poem – whatever you think is the most fitting send off for your loved one. You can hold the ceremony wherever you like too. Often places that were very special to them are chosen. If it is a popular spot however, you may want to consider the time you scatter the ashes as there may well be many people around. You don’t want to hurry the ceremony but you may not want people staring. I can hold the ceremony at whatever time of day you choose.
In the ‘What Happens Next’ section below I have outlined a full service for the scattering of ashes. It may be that you have already had a service and just want a something a little different. Please get in touch and we can talk about what you have in mind.
Family and friends can also be involved in the delivery of the service if they feel able. I will stand beside them if they find it too much on the day.
My one hope for the day is that you look back at the ceremony and feel that you honoured your loved one with the most deeply personal, heartfelt farewell you could.
