Scattering and Interment of Ashes

Celebrant Ceremonies by Elaine Ashes Ceremony

After a cremation many people prefer to receive their loved one’s ashes, and this can help bring some closure. This then brings the question of where to keep them. The deceased may have stated their wishes, perhaps to be scattered in a meaningful area. Some mourners want to hold onto the ashes for comfort and keep them in their home, while others organise ‘the interment of ashes’ to create a permanent place outside the home, where all those who knew the deceased can pay their respects. 
The choice you make may depend on cultural and religious preferences, and on loved ones’ final wishes.

Your ceremony your choice

The great thing is that it is entirely up to you, With a little thought and preparation your ceremony to inter or scatter their ashes, will be meaningful, memorable, heartfelt and dignified. It is an opportunity to give your loved one the send-off they would have wished for.

You can choose precisely how you want to carry out the proceedings, with as much or as little formality as you like. This is usually an  intimate and private occasion with selected people around you.

The location of a Scattering Ceremony can be as unique and individual as the person being commemorated. From formal gardens of remembrance, to a place/places special to you or the person who departed, even in your own home – the options are pretty much unlimited.
