Leicester City Council have put together a leaflet detailing where you can scatter cremation ashes, on land within their jurisdiction.
They have to be congratulated for their forward thinking, and whilst they do have a very real need due to help their population; which has a one on the largest Hindu communities in the country they have also detailed where within their parks ashes can be scattered.

The leaflet has a map and also a form which needs to be submitted to the council. We have had feedback from the Leicester residents that this is not that easy to do – the Fax number doesn’t work and the telephone waiting time is very long (I gave up after 15 minutes on hold!), still they are aware of the issue and are trying to create a web page to submit the information – fingers crossed!
