I just wanted to thank you and your team for putting on such an amazing firework display. It really was a spectacular event and so much more beautiful than I or my guests could ever imagine. It really was a very fitting tribute to my Aunt and I can not thank you enough for all your hard work and support. Everybody at the memorial last night was full of praise and moved to tears. Clare

If you would like to organise a ashes into fireworks – celebration of life display we will need about 7 days notice so we can carry out the risk assessment and design the display and some periods are busier than others. The pyrotechnic organiser will need the ashes 2 days before your event so they can prepare the fireworks. Of course the ashes are treated with the greatest of care and respect.
People often request to have their ashes sent up in a rocket. All the above displays can have 6 rockets included into the display for an additional £250, but these rockets will only scatter a small amount of the ashes with the rest of the ashes being scattered by other types of fireworks. Rockets tend not to be used in professional displays as they are very susceptible to the wind and so often can’t be used, hence why we only offer it as an optional extra
The following information is a guide to help you find a suitable location for a scattering ashes fireworks display.
1/ As the fireworks display will be a professional display the safety distances we operate under are greater than those specified for public use of fireworks. Broadly speaking there needs to be at least 30 meters between the fireworks and the audience, and then about 100 meters of clear space beyond the fireworks for fallout (i.e. space where there are no people, or buildings that could get easily damaged). This is only a guide as the prevailing wind direction and the type of fireworks being used also play an important factor.
2/ The location must have the land owners permission to hold a fireworks display.
Generally speaking private homes are not suitable unless they have large enough gardens.
The kind of locations we have provided scattering ashes displays include, golf clubs, football, cricket and rugby clubs, town and country parks, country house hotels and coastal beeches.
We can quickly give you an idea of the potential suitability of a location if you send us the postcode address.
Please note that whilst parks and coastal beaches maybe freely open for public access, they will still be owned by someone or an organisation who will have to give permission for a display to take place. If you are unsure who owns a piece of land the best place to start is with the local authority.
We will always try and accommodate a display in a location if its at all possible. For instance we did a display right in a town centre just before Christmas because the location was so important to the family. The display we provided was not one of the standard packages as it had to be highly tailored to suit the location – but it was what they wanted.
3/ You must also take into consideration any sensitive neighbours. By sensitive neighbours we generally mean people with animals – particularly horses or dogs, or anyone that might be be upset by an unexpected fireworks display i.e. residents of a nursing home. You do not need any kind of licence for a display – but you must take all reasonable steps to let people know that you are planning a fireworks display so that they have ample time to prepare, and so that there is no unpleasantness afterwards.
4/ Firework displays are not permitted after 11pm, and we would recommend that any display is done well before 10pm so that it is more socially acceptable for neighbours.
