Saying goodbye to a loved one is never easy, but the right ceremony will help make the process more bearable, and cremation scattering ceremonies can help you find the closure that you need. This is a meaningful way of saying goodbye, and if you are interested in this idea, there are different ideas you can consider.

Casting Ceremony

A casting ceremony is a popular type of cremated remains scattering ceremony, during which the cremated remains are thrown into the wind and dispersed either on an area of land or water. A lot of people feel that this ceremony helps them to let go of their loved ones because it allows them to release the deceased at a special location that has been chosen for them, which is very symbolic. You can also consider a water ceremony, during which the cremated remains are spread across a body of water. This can include a lake, river, ocean or pond, and you can choose to transfer the remains to a water-soluble urn, which can be placed in the water. This urn will start to dissolve after a few minutes and will slowly release the cremated remains.

Raking Ceremony

A raking ceremony is another type of cremated remains scattering ceremony, during which the cremated remains are spread across the ground or a garden, after which the remains are gently raked through the soil to disperse them. Scattering gardens are becoming increasingly popular, so this, too, is an idea you can consider.

These are just a few types of cremated remains scattering services, and if you decide to go ahead with this type of ceremony, there are specific steps you need to follow and deciding on a location has to be at the top of your list. This should be your first step because depending on the area you select, there may be certain regulations that you must follow, and in some cases, there may even be permits you will have to obtain. Cremated remains cannot be scattered just anywhere, so you have to discuss this option with a local funeral home or agency to ensure you are not violating any local bylaws. You must obtain proper permission so that you don’t run into any problems.

There are different ways to scatter your loved one’s cremated remains, and each type of ceremony would allow you, your family and friends to find release by honouring a loved one. It is very difficult to accept the loss of a loved one, and while the process of saying goodbye is never easy, this type of ceremony can help. It is a unique way of paying your respects and an idea you and your family can look into.
