      Thank you to Bob and Jane, a truly lovely couple, for ensuring that the scattering of my mum’s ashes on the river at St Mary’s Island went perfectly. The whole experience made the day very special.

      Bob and Jane were always available to answer any queries I had leading up to the day. They put my mind at ease and I never felt I had anything to worry about.

      Thank you for the great service you provided, the send off was just the way my mum and family wanted.

      I would highly recommend using Bob and Jane.

      We recently met Jane and Bob to arrange a scattering of my father. We went to meet them before the ceremony. We were welcomed like family, got to see the boat and understand how the ceremony would pan out.

      On the day (18.11.23) everything went beautifully and it was a very intimate, dignified, respectful and just the way I wanted it to be for my Dad. Throughout it all Rob and Jane were friendly, calm, respectful and gave us additional support just by being there.

      My young grandchildren joined us for the ceremony and during the trip Jane and Bob both took the time to answer their continuous questions about the boat !

      I am so glad we had the opportunity to meet them during such a difficult time, the scattering gave me the opportunity to say a proper goodbye to my father which up until that point I had been unable to do.

      I would highly recommend Jane and Bob to anyone wanting to scatter ashes in this manner.

      Thank you both – Terry and Karen Little xx

      We hired Swanning About Charters last Sunday for the purpose of scattering our recently departed dearest mum’s ashes. Both Jane and Bob were sensitive that this was a very sad and emotional occasion for all of us siblings, and they both made us feel very welcome.
      They had in advance emailed us all of the relevant information including directions, legal requirements, safety information, etc which was really handy. Bob ran through all of the safety procedures once we were onboard their beautiful and very clean boat and answered all of our questions. Jane also helped during the ceremony, working with all of us and with the pandit (priest) carrying out the Hindu religious ceremony.
      We were very lucky to have chosen a beautiful afternoon, the sun was shining and the waters were calm. We all remarked that it was the calm and memorable send-off that we had envisaged for our dearest mum.

      Thank you again both Jane and Bob

      Dear Jane and Bob, may I thank you for all your help with the arrangements to have the ashes of my Ma, Pa and brother scattered. You were both so kind, understanding, friendly and professional, all of which made the experience even more poignant. “Song and Dance” is a beautiful lady, which you maintain to an extremely high standard. Even though it was a very windy day, Bob managed to sail us into a sheltered area and then the sun broke through the clouds as my sons and I scattered our loved ones’ ashes. As he was a scuba diver, here’s hoping that some of my brother will eventually make his way into the ocean. My sincere thanks, once again. PS Ivy is a gorgeous girl, so affectionate

      Swanning About Charters provided me and my family with some of the most wonderful service and support imaginable. Bob and Jane were incredibly kind and accommodating – they made the process stress-free, meaningful, and memorable. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a beautiful way to honor their loved ones. I didn’t know what to expect from the boat but I can honestly say it’s one of the most beautiful boats I have been on which is well maintained by the owners. Thank you Swanning About Charters!

      In early January 2022, a few family members boarded the boat which was taken to River Medway to scatter the ashes of our Grandmother. The scattering of ashes was able to be witnessed by a larger family group who were able to watch from the riverside viewing platform.

      I cannot praise this service highly enough, special thanks to Jane and Robert; we felt in good hands from the moment we first called. The boat is very clean and modern. The service with very peaceful and and solemn. This was the most fitting and beautiful farewell.

      I would highly recommend to my family and friends, there’s no better place to go for this service.

      I would recommend Swanning About Charters if you wish to perform the final rites of a loved one locally. It was made all that much easier with Bob and Jane being such a lovely couple. Only ten people can go on the boat but others can watch from the [shore]. The walk for them is 15 to 20 minutes I would say. Remember to give those on the [shore] flowers to put into the water when you immerse the urn so they feel part of the ritual too. Thanks Bob and Jane for making it a smooth day for us.

      Many thanks for making yesterday a most memorable occasion. We weren’t able to have a ‘proper funeral’ back in February, yesterday’s scattering more than made up for that and was completely appropriate on so many levels.

      Last month we scatter our Mother’s Ashes on the River Medway. This was the first death in our family and we really did not know what to expect.

      After my initial call with Bob, it was clear we would be in good hands, and gave me the advice we needed. On the day we were greeted by Jane at the entrance to the marina, she was so warm and caring that it felt like we had known her for years just after a few moments. Both Jane and Bob were very knowledgeable about our faith system and guided us through the whole process.

      I had concerns about how I would lower the urn, how and what you should do etc, Jane knew exactly how to do it and gently guided me through the process. The platform on the back of the boat was ideal and also the safety features.

      Thanks to Rob, Jane, and their Boat, the whole process of scattering our Mother’s Ashes was done with so much love and peace.

      Dear Bob and Jane
      Can’t thank you enough for accommodating me and my family on what was a difficult day. Thank you for your attentiveness and consideration, it was so appreciated, nothing was too much of a trouble for you, I hope sometime next year on the anniversary of my dear brothers birthday I can come with some of my family and we can have some better memories to look back on
      Thank you again and God bless you

      Dear Robert and Jane,

      I just wanted to say a very big thank you for today. Your warmth, kindness, generosity and sincerity was very much appreciated on what was a very difficult and emotional day for my family.

      Your respect and consideration to our needs was very comforting and the grace shown by you both ensured that the day was memorable for the right reasons and helped to mark the passing of my father with a very dignified and honourable service.

      Wishing you both the best and hopefully, we’ll back with my kids on a more happier occasion.

      Kind regards,
      April 2019

      Today me and my 2 children along with a few close family members bid a final farewell to my husband by scattering his ashes on the River Medway. I can’t thank Bob and Jane enough for making this experience a memorable one. They were professional, kind, friendly and provided great service. They made me and my children feel comfortable and consoled at all times and we knew we were in safe hands. Thank you for being so understanding and doing everything the way which made us happy. We had the most peaceful and beautiful farewell and everything was really appreciated.

      Last June, on a beautiful sunny day, my Mother, Husband and my 2 teenage sons went out on the River Medway to scatter my Father’s ashes. It had taken us a long time to decide what to do with my Father’s ashes and the whole experience was so beautiful and peaceful that this confirmed that we had taken the right decision to ask Bob and Jane to help.
      They were both so welcoming and lovely throughout the whole experience. The boat was clean and comfortable, and we were all given the opportunity to go onto the top deck. We were given the time we needed to say goodbye to my Father and were not hurried in any way. i would like to thank Jane and Bob for all their help and advice.

      “Today we went out on the Medway to scatter ashes. Jane and Bob were very accommodating and showed particular sensitivity in the matter. The boat is lovely, both inside and out, and it is well kept and tidy. Jane was very attentive to our needs and, following the ceremony, Bob was kind enough to allow us onto the top deck where he offered information about various local features on the river. We would recommend the service offered. Dr B

      “The level of service we received was excellent. The boat is beautiful and they were really welcoming, professional and very accommodating to our requirements.

      They were very kind, respectful and understanding of our loss. I would highly recommend this service to anyone thinking of scattering their loved ones ashes into the river.
      I did not really have time to grieve for my mother since I had to worry about organising her funeral and by using this service it allowed me to have the opportunity to say goodbye to her properly. Thank you “

          Bob & Jane, just wanted to say a huge heartfelt thanks from all the family. You looked after us all very well; you had my dad’s favourite song on the boat playing; it was an intimate & loving time for the family, and you ensured we were all fine. Special thanks for taking extra care of my mum; grateful that you followed the Sikh traditions at the ceremony. Stay blessed.

          Best regards

          Bal
