Removal of cremated remains

Cremated remains can be taken away for private scatter or burial elsewhere or to keep at home until the family is ready to lay them to rest.

A certificate of cremation is always issued, and the correct permission must be obtained before any cremated remains are scattered or buried.

The cremated remains will be in a biodegradable casket. We will label the casket with the name of your loved one and we will give you a certificate confirming the details of the cremation.

Please take special care of the certificate as the ashes cannot be committed elsewhere without it. If you want to take the ashes abroad for committal, please let us know as you will need additional documents to take with you.

Scatter tubes are available for purchase in the enquiries office at Thornhill.
