Thanks to an increase in the number of people choosing cremation over burial, more and more people are choosing to scatter the ashes of a loved one. When it comes to scattering ashes, there are many options to choose from; ashes can be dispersed into the air, released into a body of water, or scattered at a place that holds emotional value. The process of cremation ensures that the ashes are harmless and don’t come with any health risk.
Within the last century, the popularity of cremation instead of burial has risen significantly. Following this rise in popularity, it has been closely followed by many new and unique ways to honour a loved ones memorial. The Living Urn has very quickly become a devoted choice given it’s sustainable ethos and benefits to our environment. However, another very popular memorial is a Burial at Sea. Like everything else, there are many things to consider when choosing this method. Families will have to consider things such as boat rental, attendance and the services required.
One of the most common funeral ceremonies in the world is cremation. In the UK, the cremation rate has risen steadily from 35% in 1960 to nearly 80% in the current day. It is also common for those who choose this form of ‘burial’, will choose to have their ashes scattered.
