Scattering of Ashes on the 'Garden of Reflection':

The scattering of ashes are permitted for both residents and non residents of the West End parish.

Ashes can be scattered at our Quob Lane Cemetery.   Unfortunately, you are not allowed to leave memorials or flowers where the ashes are scattered. To do this officially we have introduced new rules about where and when this can be done.

If you wish to scatter ashes, a fee is chargable, and the next of kin or executor of their Will, needs to complete a request form.
