Scattering Ashes

by Kevin
(Stockport)

Dear Wil


Is it permissable to scatter ashes on Lligwy beach?

Our parents had a caravan at Lligwy and spent much of their time on the beach. Their main ashes will be interred at Manchester and we have a small scatter tube.

It was their wish to be scattered at their favourite place.

Regards

Kevin




Dear Kevin

My deepest condolences to you and all the family.

I am so glad that your Mother and Father found a place on Anglesey that brought them great joy.

There are two answers to your question:

I believe that you need a licence to scatter ashes outside of a cemetry.

There again, you could be mischievous and I'm not going to tell anyone.

The reality is that it would be very uncomfortable for any local authority who'd seek to prosecute such a very specific and moving family event. They never do.

So, I hope that it is a warm ceremony that draws you all closer around the important memories that shaped your family and helped pass on values from one generation to the next.

One thing my sister-in-law's ashes revealed to me. We are so much more.

Best wishes to you all,

Wil
