Scattering of Ashes
Do I need a Celebrant?
Scattering of Ashes can be a private family affair or you may wish to invite friends. This can be done in a favourite place of your loved one, at sea, across gardens they may have frequented, a favourite holiday place, at
home or at the beach.
You may not need a Celebrant for this but if you have not had the opportunity to have a Funeral or a Memorial service, (COVID 19) restrictions, sometimes the scattering of ashes can be your opportunity to acknowledge a loved one’s life and farewell them through ritual in front of friends and family.
A Celebrant can add a sense of ritual and closure to the occasion. I will say appropriate words/prayers prior to the scattering and there is an opportunity for family to say farewell or thank them for something close to their hearts.
Often this is followed by a gathering with family and friends to drink a toast or just gather and talk to mark the occasion at a local Pub/restaurant or nearby.
