Urns and Keepsakes
You have three options for your loved ones ashes, they can be buried, scattered or kept at home. Scattering cannot be reversed and burial difficult (only with an exhumation order) we recommend that you discuss these options carefully with your family before you make a final decision.
Burial of Ashes
After the funeral your loved ones ashes can be placed in a wooden casket or other biodegradable container and buried in a churchyard, cemetery or memorable place. Some examples of the ashes caskets we can provide are shown below:
There are various different places ashes can be scattered. You can scatter ashes:
- In the trees of remembrance at Kingsdown Crematorium
- At a memorable place
- At sea
Alternatively ashes can be transferred into a scatter pod (foc) for collection by the arranger of the funeral.
For an extensive list of where ashes can be scattered the website below gives good advice about places, methods and the laws and regulations http://www.scattering-ashes.co.uk/ If you would like to scatter your loved ones ashes please let us know after the funeral and we will transfer the ashes into a polytainer (free of charge) or scatter tube.
