Where Can I Scatter Cremated Remains?
After cremation, the person’s ashes are handed over to the next of kind. Many people who are not acquainted with the cremation process and how it works aren’t sure about what they need to do with the ashes or cremains. The Arbutus Funeral Service team is here to provide clients with helpful information to make this process easier.
Places Where You Can Scatter Cremains
There are various options to choose from. The places where you can scatter ashes after cremation include:
- Some people like the idea of scattering ashes at sea as it is a way of returning the person to nature. Sometimes people mention this specifically in their will or preplan contract. While many places permit this, you must check local and federal laws related to scattering ashes at sea.
- The other option of disposing of ashes is by scattering them in the mountains or some other outdoor location. Again, check the local laws before doing so.
Some Other Options
Some families want to keep their loved departed one close to them and you can do some other things with the ashes. For example, you can place the urn with the ashes in a columbarium at the cemetery or funeral home.
Alternatively, place the urn in your home on a fireplace mantle or in your bedroom. You can also create a little memorial nook in your house or garden and decorate it with plants, flowers, and memorabilia. If you prefer, consider burying the urn in your backyard and plant a tree in that spot in your loved one’s memory.
