Scattering Ashes

Many people choose to scatter the cremated remains of a loved one in a location that has a personal meaning or a connection with the deceased.

Research has shown that many choose to scatter remains in a special place, with popular choices including scenic views, mountains, woodlands, parks and beaches.

There are numerous things to consider before scattering remains. Here’s just a few:

  • Find out who owns the land and seek their permission before you scatter the cremated remains.
  • Scatter in a secluded area away from other people as it may upset them.
  • Be aware of the environment and avoid areas of special conservation.
  • Be discreet and informal
