No - We can’t send ashes overseas directly, however we can help you to make the arrangements to do so yourself.

The choice is entirely yours. It's not uncommon for people to divide the ashes of the deceased between their loved ones, so that everyone can have a reminder of them.

There can occasionally be restrictions on scattering ashes in certain locations. If you’ve got a specific location in mind, it’s best to speak to someone associated with that destination before making your decision.

There are lots of things you can do with the ashes. Many people scatter ashes in a place that was special to the deceased, some keep them in an urn as a keepsake and others have recently started to have ashes turned into jewellery or glass.

There’s no need to use a funeral director if you don’t want to. You can arrange the details of the funeral directly with us and we’ll also help make all the arrangements. If you need help on where to start, check out our in-depth guide to arranging a funeral.

All of our ashes are returned in a simple urn which can be upgraded to a wooden urn for an additional cost.
