Honouring Life Service

A personalised, meaningful tribute

Some families wish to be present when their loved one’s ashes are placed in their final resting place.

They may choose to come together over a quiet service, scattering or interring ashes in our landscaped gardens. They might decide to play special songs, or share a reading or personal wishes. Some may wish to remember with a personalised floral tribute, or share memories and spark conversation over a meal.

Bringing family and close friends together can be a wonderful way to celebrate the life of a loved one after a cremation, creating an opportunity to pay tribute in a way that feels personal and meaningful. An Honouring Life Service can be tailored to suit your family’s wishes, and you can be as involved in the process as you would like.

It is up to you – however you wish to celebrate the memory of your loved one, our team is here to support you.

“Thank you to all the lovely staff that I spoke to today and helped with the scattering of my mum's ashes. The cafe staff were fantastic … Very much appreciated.”
