Good news – it would appear that Cheltenham Racecourse allows scattering of cremated funeral ashes, here is what they say:
” We allow the scattering of ashes at Cheltenham Racecourse. There is no charge however there are restrictions as to when they can do this. We don’t permit it during race meetings or either the day before or the day after as that is when the track is being attended to. In March when we have our major Festival meeting we don’t permit the week before and about 2 or three days after that meeting.
To arrange a time they just need to contact me on 01242 537602 or can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org”
