The law on scattering ashes in the UK is fairly relaxed, and you can even scatter or bury ashes in your garden if you wish.
Unfortunately, you cannot always control what will happen to the land you scatter your loved one’s ashes on – it may be redeveloped, or you may move house, and your special resting place could be compromised.
However, large volumes of ashes can be detrimental to natural flora. So, although scattering the ashes of your loved ones in a special place is not going to cause a problem, it is not something that we can allow in our woodlands.
For details on how our woodland plots guarantee a forever place, please read Our Promise.
