Thank Kew – Scattering at Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens: permit ashes to be scattered. This can be arranged by emailing commemorative@kew.org or by calling Lauren Bond on 020 8332 3645. It can be done on any day, and while there is no specific notice period the earlier the better as only one scattering per day is permitted. At Kew ashes can be scattered in a location of your choice, however we do ask that you do not do so on water or around any of the glasshouses. We ask that you bring no more than 5 guests to the scattering, and you are very welcome to stay in the gardens afterwards. There is a minimum donation of £500 for all scatterings, and this will be used to support the care and maintenance of the Gardens.

Wakehurst: permit ashes to be scattered.

At Wakehurst ashes are scattered in Bethlehem Wood, one of the peaceful areas of the Gardens. The Wood is situated to the west of the Millennium Seed Bank and is home to the national collection of birch trees. In spring, it is covered with bluebells. We ask that you bring no more than 5 guests to the scattering, and you are very welcome to stay in the gardens afterwards.
