In Memoriam

Scattering of Ashes

It is not uncommon for someone's last wish to involve having their ashes scattered in a favourite or significant place.  Scattering of ashes is permitted at Ness subject to arrangement.

Please be aware that:

  • There are specific sites within the grounds for scattering ashes.
  • No markers, displays or plaques may be placed in the gardens
  • Ashes must be evenly scattered over the chosen area
  • Ashes may not be scattered in any water features
  • Areas where ashes are spread may be developed in the future
  • We suggest early in the morning before the gardens are open to the public or late afternoon as a good time of day for your memorial
  • Ashes scattered without permission will be removed.
