    1. Kris Bachoo - January 30, 2023

      Good morning,

      Yesterday we scattered my father’s ashes at the Clyde estuary, with the assistance of Iain Christie, Duncan and Graham.

      The process was made really easy with constant contact from Duncan, with clear directions, postcodes and even where to purchase cheaper ferry tickets to get across to Dunoon!

      The service and support made it easy to ask questions at anytime, and to honour my father’s wishes.

      We couldn’t have done this without the help of your excellent website and list of contacts.

      Thank you so much. We really do appreciate your help.
