This is a decision that does not need to be made at the time of the funeral arrangements. There are many appropriate ways for dealing with your loved one’s ashes after the funeral. Great Northern Garden of Remembrance can provide you with a range of options or answer any questions you might have.

There is a common misconception that you must inter or in-urn ashes in the grounds or walls of the crematorium where the cremation took place. This is not so. Families may collect their loved one’s ashes and either create their own memorial, such as a special garden or a pond at home or they may wish to scatter them in a park, in the sea or at some other location of special significance. Some families have a Minister or Celebrant perform a small ceremony at the inurnment or scattering of a loved one’s ashes.
A wonderful way to be remembered in a beautiful bushland setting where your family can visit and reflect.
