You can scatter ashes by casting them into the wind using a scattering tube. Other options include creating a garden feature or letting the ashes wash them away.

If you want to say a few words before scattering the ashes, you could give a brief history of the person who died and share some of the things you’ll remember most about them.

Hold the scattering tube at waist height before scattering the ashes, and make sure your friends and family are standing upwind.

The moment can be over quickly, so you may want someone to take a few photos for you to look back on.

If you don’t like the idea of scattering the ashes, you could place them in an urn and keep them at home – or you could even get them interred at your local cemetery.
