A Legal Last Resting Place for your loved one’s cremated remains: ‘Mark Their Life’ with a Commemorative Tree
(maybe not as big as this one)
Many people choose their loved one’s favourite location to scatter their ashes. This is legal – providing you have the landowner’s permission – but as ashes are highly alkaline in their untreated state many councils, park authorities and landowners do not allow ashes to be scattered on their land.
Many people scatter anyway and do not bother to seek permission but this will cause unsightly surface damage to their loved-one’s much loved site. Rather than break the law and cause damage why not create a place where you can properly celebrate your loved one’s life:

Other Legal Ashes Options
- the Crematorium where the cremation took place will provide free ashes scattering facilities;
- if this is not nearby and you wish to use a more convenient remembrance setting most crematoriums and many cemeteries (and a very few natural burial grounds) will permit scatterings for a fee (known as an ashes from elsewhere scattering) but there is almost always a fee (£60-£100 is typical). There are usually special locations for this and you will not normally be permitted to scatter ashes on another loved-one’s grave. However a crematorium will normally try to facilitate the scatter taking place in an area where a previous loved-one was scattered;
- Most Crematoriums and Natural Burial Grounds will permit ashes burial, but this is relatively expensive;
- There are a number of barrow and columbarium facilities which allow ashes storage.
