What is a Scattering of Ashes?

Scattering of ashes or sea scattering is an option that the family of the deceased can avail. It refers to scattering the ashes into the sea. The ashes are collected in an urn or vessel and scattered at a predetermined location in the presence of the key members of the family. The perfect urns can be found at our online store. It is a very personal and culturally important ceremony; it is considered a unique opportunity to let the deceased peacefully rest in the vast sea. You may request for light refreshments after the completion of the ceremony, which will be arranged for as per your requirements. We can help you find the best location that suits your liking and preferences and make the ashes scattering ceremony a memorable one for your family and guests. We understand that this is an emotional experience for the entire family and utmost care is involved while going about the process at every stage by us. During the memorial service we encourage family members of the deceased to scatter all or some portion of the ashes into the ocean. We can provide flower petals to be disbursed alongside the ashes and also advise the GPS position if requested for future location.
