Our website has loads of helpful and informative advice about what you can and cannot do with cremation ashes. You could gather friends and family together for a simple ashes ceremony in a favourite spot or on a boat. Or you could send them into space, set them alight on a Viking Longboat or have a firework display.

We are here to help you choose a suitable way to remember your loved one, whatever you choose to do. We’ll guide you through the journey making sure you have a truly memorable ceremony. We have cremation urns to suit ever occasion.

After the Ashes Ceremony

You may wish to scatter all the ashes and simply have a favourite place to visit when you want to remember and reflect about your loved one. But if not you may wish to consider keeping the ashes at home or in the garden. And if you don’t mind splitting the ashes you could have a piece of memorial jewellery of glassware made with the ashes. In can be very comforting to hold something in your hand. You might want to keep a small amount of ashes for future generations to be able to create something memorable. Whatever you feel you need to do we will always be on hand to discuss what would work best for you and your family.
