Many families opt for cremation so that they can scatter the ashes in meaningful and memorable spots. This action commemorates their loved one by retracing their happiest moments. For many, there is no more profound way to honor a loved one’s memory.
In the last few years, I’ve been involved in a few ‘interment of ashes ceremonies’ at local cemeteries, in which a designated area is allocated for permanently placing the ashes, either within a columbarium niche or directly into the ground. A memorial plaque with your loved one’s name would be displayed.
There is value in having a loved one’s ashes in a permanent resting place. It allows the family to visit at any time, reflect, and even find comfort to celebrate good news and to share. As human beings, we crave physical closeness with our loved ones. Having something to touch – a marker, a plot of soft grass – connects us to the loved one’s essence and can help make the separation feel less final.

My family and I were so relieved that Evelyn was able to be there for us after our Mum died last year. It was very important to my sister and I that we create an event for our family and friends that was unique and reflected the person our Mum was and everything she meant to us. Evelyn was there beside us to guide us through the planning of the memorial at every step of the way, making suggestions about various aspects of the service, while being completely respectful of our vision. Evelyn’s confident, caring and warm presence was exactly what we needed to get us through a difficult but ultimately uplifting day. We know that we sent our Mum off well, and many people commented to us afterwards that it was the most beautiful and engaging celebration of the end of life that they had ever been part of. Thank you, Evelyn.
