Honour Your Loved Ones with a Beautiful Water Tribute

Welcome to Scattering on Water, your dedicated resource for commemorating your loved ones by scattering their ashes on or in water. Whether you prefer a serene lake, a tranquil river, a picturesque beach, or an ocean voyage, we provide everything you need to create a meaningful and dignified water tribute.

Why Choose Scattering on Water?

Scattering ashes on water offers a peaceful and timeless way to say farewell. The flowing waters symbolise the continuity of life, creating a serene and reflective environment for you to honour your loved one’s memory.

Water is a wonderful place to scatter your loved one's cremation ashes. Whether you choose a river, the sea, a lake, or a canal - we can help. People of the British Isles and beyond have a strong association with water. We grow up playing in the sea on holiday, fishing in our rivers, swimming in our lakes, and many even work in the Royal Navy or volunteer with the RNLI. As an island nation, water holds a deep spiritual connection forged by our forefathers. It is not surprising that many of us wish this to be the final resting place for our ashes.

Water is both mentally calming and stimulating, with tranquil lakes, babbling brooks, fast-flowing rivers, and crashing waves. If this is your choice, we can help you choose the right location. We have over 60 boats available to take you somewhere peaceful and private for your water ceremony. We can help you select the right urn for the occasion, turn it into a family ceremony so everyone can participate, and even record the event for future generations.
