Scattering Ashes Service

Scattering Ashes Service across the UK and overseas. Are you looking for your loved one’s ashes to be scattering at a particular destination within the UK or overseas but are unable to do this yourself? We can help.

Many of us will have a place in mind that we want our ashes to be scattered over after we have gone. This can sometimes be difficult for family or friends to co-ordinate, especially if they are overseas. Do you need permission? How do you arrange the transportation of the ashes? Can you take the time away from work or home to scatter the ashes in the chosen location? It can be very difficult and we can help arrange this for you.

Your loved one’s ashes will be treated with the greatest of respect at all times. You will receive a picture of the ashes scattering service along with a certificate with the exact location so that you or future generations can visit at a later date. The certificate is included in the price, you can add a other ceremony items such as petals or seedballs for a small additional price. We can even arrange to have them scattering on water, for our boat service see this link.

Each Scattering Ashes Service request will be assessed on an individual basis and the price will be dependent upon the location (distance and travelling costs) and any permission factors.

Testimonial Liz R, UK
“Just to let you know how wonderful the family thought Roy Bushell and his son were on Saturday when we went out in their boat, Knoydart, from Greenhithe.  We had a most lovely ceremony almost under the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge.  A fitting way to say Goodbye to my dear Husband who just loved the Thames.  What lovely people – they helped make it an evening to remember – along with an unexpected rainbow which appeared after the urn was plopped into the water and then a seal came up near the boat to say Hello.
Thank you again.”

scattering ashes loch lomond

Loch Lomond: Sterling

Scattering ashes over Loch Lomond

Location Luss Pier, Loch Lomond
Area of operation Loch Lomond
Type of boat See above
Duration of trip 30 Mins – 60 Mins – more if required
Capacity of boat With regards to the seating capacity our boats can accommodate a maximum of 7 passengers per boat [8 persons including our driver] but we do have 4 boats available and so we often provide this service for large groups up to a maximum of 28 persons. With large groups we would therefore send multiple boats out to travel together, stop at the same place, switch the engines off and ‘raft up’ the boats side by side [or to stop at one of the islands]
Refreshments Discuss with boat operator
Ceremony Scattering ashes directly onto the water can lead to them being blown about which some families may find distressing. We supply a wide range of urns specifically designed for water ceremonies. They are all 100% biodegradable and will dissolve in water – please follow the link: Water Urns

Cost £60 for 30mins £100 for the hour
Company comments 30 minutes should be sufficient time to cruise out and to find a nice scenic spot and to then stop and to switch the engines off for a few minutes and to then head back to Luss. If you have a specific location or viewpoint that you wanted to visit then the longer booking might be required and a longer trip would also provide the option to visit one of Loch Lomond’s many islands

You don’t need words to say goodbye

We often think we need words to fill our world, here two brothers (presumably) are scattering the ashes of their father in a tranquil and beautiful setting. Nothing is said apart from one enquiring whether the bag containing the ashes is to be washed out with the sea water.

I like it. I always think there should be words noise and such, but this meant a lot to them, they had clearly gone to some trouble so each to their own I say.

scattering ashes out at sea in a message bottle

The Travellers last journey: Ashes in a bottle

scattering ashes out at sea in a message bottle

From the  Great Barrier Reef to the beaches of the Caribbean, some of us just love to travel. The adventure, the restless spirit, the sites the smells and the people you meet along the way. Well when a loved one passes away and they had a passion for the open road somehow it doesn’t seem fair to put to put them on the shelf or in the garden. Or maybe that your loved one always wanted to travel but couldn’t an injury, disability or maybe family commitments kept them back  – well how about giving them one last journey?

What about this for an idea: Place a token amount of the ashes of a loved one and a message in a bottle, seal it and cast it on to the open sea – let currents and the tides do the rest.

So how do you go about it, here is our suggested plan:

  1. Select a bottle, we would suggest one that is clear so people can see there is a message inside it.
  2. The stopper can be either cork or screw fit, the latter easier and more practical perhaps but lacks a certain charm
  3. Consider your message, do you want the person who finds it to do something specific like emailing you? You may just want a poem or some last words?
  4. Put the ashes into the bottle, either lose or in a container of some sort: if lose, should the bottle break the ashes will be scattered naturally, but it may put someone off opening the bottle if the message is covered in ashes. One idea might be to use a small paper bag as this will separate the two, but will release the ashes if the bottle broken.
  5. You could put the message inside a plastic sleeve or similar to protect it, but we are not so keen – plastic will not break down naturally and again it lacks charm.
  6. Seal the bottle with sealing wax to prevent the salt water from decaying the cork

Right, now you are ready to go, but how do you ensure the chance of long and varied journey?

  1. Starting in a rivers are fine, but the sea is likely to be better.
  2. Use the outgoing tide.
  3. Going on a ferry or cruise – pop it over the side
  4. Ask a fisherman to drop it overboard when they next set sail
  5. Look at the map of ocean currents http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocean_current

So good luck and Bon Voyage!

We love this idea and are considering putting a set together, if you are interested drop us a line and we can email you once it is in stock.

A luxury motor boat cruise in Poole Harbour. 

The large aft deck can be fully enclosed, if required, making it completely waterproof and warm. There is a bathing platform with sturdy steps, taking you down to the water, which can be easily viewed from the aft deck for those not wishing to climb down to sea level. 

 We include tea/coffee with either pastries (mornings) or cake (afternoons). There is a toilet on board and plenty of comfortable seating. 

‘Good Times’ is skippered and crewed by the owners, who ensure attention to detail & always a friendly, warm welcome.

The price quoted is for a trip within Poole Harbour, usually to a tranquil anchorage to the North of Brownsea Island, lasting  approximately 1 1/2 hours. Longer trips are available on request.

Disabled Access Due to the access to the boat (there are 4 steps), and then more steps if the guests wish to use the toilet facilities, so we are not suitable for the wheelchair disabled, but are perfectly suited for the elderly and those with slight mobility issues.
Parking Public Car parking is available just opposite the boat at the Thistle Hotel BH15 1HJ.
