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 this link: Water urns
We also supply a range of water ceremony sets which include an urn, flower petals, dissolvable noteless and a certificate to record the ceremony. Our sets and ceremony accessories can be viewed here: Sets and ceremony accessories
