Ashes can be scattered almost anywhere, as long as you have full permission to do so from the landowner. However, there are a few serious considerations to be made before choosing your loved one’s resting place; most importantly whether it will still be accessible to your family in years to come.
Back gardens make a lovely personal choice, but people often move house, and local parks and public woods are always vulnerable to development.
Unfortunately we cannot permit the scattering of ashes in our woodlands as it would be detrimental to the natural flora and fauna. Ashes generally have a PH of 11.8 and a saline concentration around 200 times greater than any plant species can tolerate, serious consideration needs to be given to how this is neutralised prior to interment.
