    The water urn I ordered from Scattered ashes was a perfect choice for our coastal send off. The product was excellent and the service and advice very helpful and empathetic. Many thanks

    We chose the pale green ball – very pretty. It was quite heavy already when empty and when we filled it with the ashes we could tell that it would not float in the sea. It didn’t. It sank immediately. The main reason for choosing the ball was to prevent any wind blowing the ashes and to keep it as dignified a ceremony as possible, and we had children with us, so we were not too upset that it disappeared straight away. I bought some rose petals for us all to scatter on the water and they did float away, so that helped make it more of a lasting event.

      I am sorry to hear that the ball sank straight way, although it was reassuring to hear that the ceremony was still memorable. I have seen these ball floating, but you’re absolutely right if there is a lot of weight in the urn the air trapped inside the ball will not be enough to make it float. I will ask the manufacture to clarify exactly how much is the maximum, and if they don’t tell us we will test it ourselves. Sincere apologies once more.
