- At Sea:
With this option, you can choose to do it yourself or hire a company. There are companies out there who do sea scattering. If you want something personal, you can scatter the ashes after finding the open sea.
- Scattering in Gardens:
If you are looking for a beautiful location, a garden might be a perfect spot. You can often find these at cemeteries or crematoriums where a garden is set aside for scattering ashes. These facilities often have markers to remember your loved one whether an urn, statue or plaque.
- Aerial Scattering
Many pilots have special equipment that will make sure the ashes are spread in the specific location you like. If you decide to go this route, you will need to hire a company. This idea should be perfect if your loved one was a risk-taker or loved being in the air.
- Private Property
If you decide to scatter the ashes on your property or another loved one's property, that is a great way to bring joy and feel like your family member is always there.
- Public Property
If your family member enjoyed going to parks or loved nature, you might choose a national park to scatter their ashes. To go on this route, you will need to find out the legalities of scattering ashes in these locations.
When deciding what ceremony is best, keep your loved one in mind and plan accordingly. What's most important is you don't rush and take your time in choosing the perfect ceremony. Spreading ashes should be memorable and a special moment for you and your family.
