    Thank you so much for the quality of the casket built to the exacting standards required by the Royal Navy.

    My Father’s committal to the sea was conducted this morning and further to this we were escorted to St Anne’s Church on the base.

    Here, my Father’s record of committal will be placed in a register as a permanent record.

    Your business played an important part this morning and I’d like to pass on my family’s sincere appreciation to you and your team.

    The service provided by Scattering Ashes is impeccable. I ordered the urn on one day and it had arrived before I’d had a chance to look at the confirmation email. It is sturdy and well made and meets the exact requirements for a Royal Navy committal, without me having to specify measurements, numbers of holes, weight etc. I also purchased a certificate to complete with the details of the committal ceremony, who was there, location etc, which I thought was a nice touch to add. Super happy with this purchase. It means I am doing my Dad proud.
