Burying ashes

When burying ashes in a cemetery, churchyard or other burial ground, rather than scattering them, they are usually contained within an urn or casket that has been designed for the purpose. We are able to make all interment arrangements for you, where necessary complete and submit appropriate paperwork and help you with your choice of urn or casket – please ask to see our full range.

Not all cemeteries and churchyards allow the burial of ashes, but where that option does exist, the style and wording of memorials that can be erected on the plot vary considerably.

There may also be limitations regarding the future interments within a grave following the interment of another’s ashes. However, if this is your preferred choice we can help you explore the options.
