How to record Ash scattering ceremonies.
Keeping a record for future generations is important, when you do something as symbolic as scattering a loved ones ashes you think you will always remember the exact details.
However, as this often done in a time of emotional stress, details and the rational can become blurred. Keep a record and put it with your family certificates.

You don’t have to buy ours, but you may wish to record in your own way, try to include the following:
- Where – simple enough, but be detailed if there is a reason, not just – Beaumaris, but the end of the pier at Beaumaris
- What time of day you conducted the ceremony – eg dawn; sunset; midday; midnight; a specific time.
- When – the date – any particular reason why this date was chosen? A birthday or anniversary?
- Why you choose to scatter there, stories will be passed down why that particular spot was selected – leave no one guessing
- Who was there
- Detail – e.g. did everybody there sprinkle some ashes.
Was there an Order of Service, if so attach it.
