After a cremation, the standard next steps are the family receiving the ashes. In some instances, this brings closure to this deeply affecting time and the family choose to keep their ashes at home – usually kept in a special container or urn. Some find solace holding a private scattering of ashes in their garden, or perhaps burying the ashes in a special location (internment).
Many families opt to scatter the ashes in a variety of ways, depending on their cultural and religious preferences, as well as their loved ones’ final wishes and sometimes in more than one location.
You can choose precisely how you want to carry out the proceedings, with as much or as little formality as you like. The Scattering of Ashes is usually intimate, a private occasion with selected people around you, and is an act you would like to give a tone of ceremony to.
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 died, even in your own home – the options are pretty much unlimited, and we can discuss any concerns you have along when we arrange an initial discussion.
We will make sure the Scattering of Ashes Ceremony is just right by helping you prepare a ceremony fully reflective of the life of the person, your (and others’) special memories and relationships with that person, and to leave you all with the feeling that you have been part of something that will comfort you in your sorrow and loss.
Their story will be told in precisely the way you want their story to be told.
