Suitable urn Scattering ashes directly onto the water can lead to them being blown about which some families may find distressing. We supply a wide range of urns specifically designed for water ceremonies. They are all 100% biodegradable and will dissolve in water – please follow the link: Water Urns

We also supply a water ceremony set which includes a water urn, flower petals for scattering, Promises – dissolvable notelets for scattering with the ashes, a certificate to record the ceremony, and our award winning (and rated 5* on Amazon) guide book: follow the link – 4th Ceremony Set

Additional infoChristians, Hindu, Sikhs and all other religions catered for as well as non-religious ceremonies.
Getting thereSouth side of Lambeth Bridge, opposite Lambeth Palace. Parking: There are pay and display bays on Lambeth High Street. At the Lambeth Bridge roundabout, turn down Lambeth Palace Road, then immediately turn right onto Lambeth High Street (which does not look like a High Street) From Waterloo Station: jump on bus 507 at a bus stop at the back of the station, where the taxis are. This will take you directly to Lambeth Palace which is opposite our Pier – Lambeth Pier (it’s the stop after St. Thomas’s Hospital).From Westminster Station: Walk over Westminster Bridge and turn right along the river (away from the London Eye). It’s a 5-10 minute walk before you reach Lambeth Pier, which is just by Lambeth Bridge.

“I really must stop to say thank you for helping me in the Summer to arrange for a boat on the Thames for scattering my Sister’s Ashes. Your efforts and kindness in following up matters for me were really appreciated. The Boat journey was lovely and was made particularly pleasant by the two gentlemen in charge. I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of my family. ” M Dogra
