Scattering Ashes has been in the news lately. First, a very kind article on devonlive.com discussed our unique. The article highlights the rise of cremation in the UK. This has resulted in an increase of interest in ways of celebrating passed loved ones through disposition of their remains.

Western Morning News Business Awards
Another article on devonlive.com announced our place on the shortlist for the 2017 Western Morning News Business Awards. We are very honored to have been included in the running for this award. We’re also proud to be a part of the South West community that these awards cover.
The WMN Business Awards bring attention to top businesses in South West. The Western Morning News hopes to accomplish two things with their awards:
- Recognize and congratulate local businesses for their success in their industry.
- Inform the public about where to find the very best products and services.
Micro Business of the Year
The specific award we’ve been nominated for is Micro Business of the Year. This category includes businesses of less than 10 staff members. Businesses in this category demonstrate financial growth, as well as products or services that shine among their competitors.
Obviously, making the shortlist does not mean we’ve officially won. However, we are pleased to be among other great micro businesses Educated Recruitment and Elixel. We know that the competition is tough, but we’re confident.
Winners will be announced at the award ceremony on November 16th. Business nominees will gather at St. Mellion International Resort for a dinner and presentation of awards. Wish us luck as we head to the show!
