Considerations and Ideas for Scattering of Loved Ones Cremains

Sep 12, 2022 | Access News, Articles & Information

Many families are interested in holding an ash scattering ceremony or scattering cremated remains in a location that perfectly memorializes their loved one.  Perhaps the loved one was an avid hiker, outdoor’s person or a lover of nature. When planning for such a ceremony, there are definitely policies and regulations that need to be followed when considering the scattering of ashes, based on the location. You may be interested in utilizing the services of companies that specialize in providing this service.  For example, you may be interested in an aerial ash scattering service, or a scattering of ashes at sea.  There are also certain national parks that allow for ash scattering, but require a permit.
