Scattering Ashes

Personal and meaningful.

Scattering cremated ashes refers to the act of dispersing the remains of a person who has been cremated into the environment. This can be done in a variety of places, including at sea, in a park or nature reserve, or in a location that holds special significance to the deceased or their family.

Scattering ashes can be a personal and meaningful way to say goodbye to a loved one, and can provide a sense of closure and release. Some families choose to scatter the ashes in a location that was meaningful to the deceased, such as a place where they spent a lot of time, or where they had a special connection. Others may choose to scatter the ashes in a place that represents their cultural or religious beliefs.

Scattering ashes can be a private, family-only affair, or it can be a larger gathering with friends and other loved ones. The choice of how and where to scatter the ashes will depend on the preferences of the family and the deceased, as well as any relevant laws and regulations. A funeral home can provide guidance on the legal requirements for scattering cremated ashes, and can offer support and advice throughout the process.
