Scattering of Ashes at sea
After cremation it is sometimes requested that the ashes be scattered at sea.
This may be due to the wishes of the dear departed, a fondness of the sea, a nautical background or experience and can be completed in a manner that will be remembered forever.
We can organise parties of up to 58 persons to be taken out to sea to a quiet location usually in Christchurch Bay.
The boat will depart from Mudeford Quay (BH23 4AB) and will usually take about an hour.
This service is available at any time of the year, weather permitting.
During the winter months of November to March, we can only take 12 passengers to sea
The cost of this service will vary depending on the number of persons travelling.
For 12 persons or less on a charter boat or the Mudeford Ferry £100.
For 13 to 28 persons on the Mudeford Ferry £140.
For 29 to 58 persons on the Mudeford Ferry £180.
