Launch of The Ashes Register
“Official record will provide future generations with details of cremated loved ones’ final resting places”
Richard Martin, founder of Scattering Ashes, is to launch an innovative register that records the final resting place of people who have been cremated in the UK, The Ashes Register. Since the late 1960’s more families have collected the ashes from the crematorium themselves, choosing scattering locations of personal significance but without any means to record the date or place.
The Ashes Register has been launched to ensure that families can record a scattering of a set of ashes for free, capturing basic information supplied by crematoria and funeral providers much like that found on a death certificate.
Richard Martin, founder of Ashes Register, said: “With an increasing focus on the cremated remains, thanks in part to the rise of direct cremation, families have been creating farewells that are more personalised to the lifestyle, tastes and preferences of the deceased, which we thoroughly support. But a direct consequence is the inability for future generations to know the location of their ancestors final resting place.”
He went on to say: “The Ashes Register will allow every family to record the location of where a loved one’s ashes are scattered plus their date of birth and death, you can even create an entry for someone who passed away decades ago.”
