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.
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.
