Following several family requests for Scattering of Ashes Ceremonies recently, we are providing some further information which may be useful for any families considering this very meaningful ceremony.

There are two ways in which this ceremony can be held, either with family and friends in attendance, or alternatively, some families, for a variety of reasons, may wish not to be present, and we can do this on behalf of the family, with video footage being taken, as a keepsake, either by ourselves, with mobile phone, or you may wish the services of a professional photographer.

We have found that most families wish to be present at this ceremony, but for those who are unable to attend the Scattering of Ashes, we can either collect the Ashes in person, or receive them from a Courier.

Acting on your behalf, we will gain the relevant permissions to proceed with the Scattering of Ashes, complying with all necessary legislation.

Whilst we are located within the Loch Lomond area, we are also available to travel to the Scottish Islands, such as Skye, Arran, Bute and Cumbrae.

For those families who live south of the Scottish Border, we have a colleague Richard Martin, whose website may contain some useful information for you.

If you are considering a Scattering of Ashes Ceremony for your loved one, please email us through our website, and we will be happy to advise.

John and Laura, Loch Lomond Celebrants.
