Hindu Scattering Service on the Ganges in India

The Hindu population of the UK increases year on year, in the last census in 2011  817,000 people in England and Wales  identified themselves as Hindus which is 1.5% of the population.

A proportion of these would loved to have their ashes placed in the Ganges in India after their death.

For some time we have been trying offer this service for people who live in the UK, so far transportation of cremation ashes from UK to India has proved difficult.

However this barrier should not prevent us trying to promote service for Hindu’s wishing to perform Asthi-visarjan(the final rites for the disposal of Antyesti in accordance with the Hindu religion), in India. The ceremony is performed in Haridwar an an ancient city in North India’s Uttarakhand state, where the River Ganges exits the Himalayan foothills – renowned for it hindu funerals, where the the ashes of the deceased are collected in an earthen pot and consigned to the holy river

HinduPartha offer a range of services to assist in this:

  • Ash Funeral Rites at Haridwar – this can be done even if the family is not present
  • Complete guidance in performing the ritual “Shradh”
  • Pind daan at Har Ki Pauri and other ritual places.

    Hi – I would like my father’s ashes to be scattered in the Ganges with an appropriate Hindu blessing. The ashes are currently in London and would obviously need to be transported to India. I would appreciate your assistance- please advise should you be able to help.
    Thank you in advance, Hitesh Patel
