Saltburn

A short story about scattering ashes on the beach

creamtion ashes scattered at Saltburn

This posting is in applauding a short story about a stepmother and her stepchildren taking the shared father/ husbands ashes to be scattered in the sea near Saltburn in the North East. The writer conveys the emotions of the characters really well. Highlighting a common issue around primacy of rights and disagreements over  how to memorialise … or what the loved one ‘would have wanted’. The tale comes complete with British dark funeral humour and improvised cremation urns.
