    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 “
