Casting is a way of scattering where the remains are tossed into the wind. Most of the remains will fall to the ground and some of the lighter particles will blow in the wind forming a whitish-grey cloud.


Trenching is digging a hole or trench in the ground or sand and the remains are placed into the trench. The remains can be placed directly into the trench.

At the end of the memorial ceremony Barry will smooth over the site.


Raking involves pouring the cremated remains from an urn evenly on loose soil and then raking them into the ground at the conclusion of the memorial ceremony.

Water Scattering

Water scattering involves placing the remains into a body of water. In order to avoid issues such as having the ashes blow back on us or the side of the boat, we again use a customized “Scattering Tube”, which alleviates this problem.  At your request, we can toss rose petals or flowers into the water after the ashes or a wreath of flowers.
