Scattering cremated ashes over the sea or a river is a fitting tribute. Water has an almost universal appeal that compels many of this Island Nation to be drawn to it. And of our many beautiful rivers there is perhaps none more famous as the Thames. It holds a very strong connection to Londoners and beyond so it is not surprising that many wish to have their ashes scattered over it, there are a number of operates offering the service and now the Maritime Volunteer Service London Unit is getting in on the act.
Although if you are interested the cost is between £350 -£500 at the time of writing.
