The north coast of Northern Ireland was impacted in both WWI and WWII, the Atlantic convoy routes passed their shores and U-boats operated within 3 miles of the coast.
The biggest number of world war shipwrecks and sunken U-boats in Europe is also here. They have scattered ashes for UK, US, Canadian families and have laid wreaths for several German and Indian families.
|Scattering ashes directly onto the water can lead to them being blown about which some families may find distressing. We supply a wide range of urns specifically designed for water ceremonies. They are all 100% biodegradable and will dissolve in water – please follow the link: Water Urns
We also supply a water ceremony set which includes a water urn, flower petals for scattering, Promises – dissolvable notelets for scattering with the ashes, a certificate to record the ceremony, and our award winning (and rated 5* on Amazon) guide book: follow the link – 4th Ceremony Set
