Help & Advice
At Scattering Ashes we have been asked all sorts of questions; do you need to get permission to scatter on Ben Nevis? How do you scatter from a boat? Can I carry ashes in my hand luggage on a plane? So we’ve put the answers to some of the most frequently asked ones on these pages.

If your place or venue isn’t listed try searching the blog or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
