Inter Ashes in Churchyard or Cemetery
You can inter the cremated remains of your loved one in a churchyard or cemetery. Locally, these include the cemeteries in Mitcham Road, Queen’s Road and Bandon Hill, Greenlawn Memorial Park and local churchyards. Reclaimed cremated remains plots can be purchased, accommodating up to eight urns, and new cremation plots are available at Greenlawn Memorial Park.
Inter in Family Garden
You can collect your loved one’s cremated remains from the crematorium a day or two after the cremation and take them home. We can provide a variety of urns or other containers, or commission the making of something unique. There is no problem if you wish to scatter or inter the cremated remains in your own garden, but bear in mind that you may move house in the future.
It would, therefore, make sense to bury the cremated remains inside a brass urn, or place them in the bottom of a terracotta pot and plant a favourite flower on top, so you can take them with you if you move. We also provide garden memorials to house the cremated remains such as those in the picture below – they can have a planter, birdbath or sundial on the memorial.
Viking ship ash casket
Some clients ask us for the romance of a Viking burial which unfortunately is not possible. However there is an attractive alternative in which after the cremation takes place, the ashes are placed in a 3ft model wicker Viking long boat, a fire is set in the long boat and then the boat set adrift.
This can take place on any waterway with permission of the local authority. Alternatively we can provide this at sea, conditions permitting.
