Scattering Ashes Rules and Regulations

Scattering Ashes Rules and Regulations

Scattering Ashes Rules and Regulations

Scattering Ashes Rules and Regulations – Last week we had the honour of being a part of an ashes scattering ceremony at Noosa. What a beautiful final resting place. Many people ask us about the regulations and requirements around scattering ashes.
  • Can I scatter ashes on public land or in the bush?
  • Can I scatter ashes on the water?
  • Can I scatter ashes on the bay or out to sea?
The simple answer is yes. So what are the scattering ashes Rules and Regulations? Where can memorial placements take place? This is directly from the Queensland Government Website “You may scatter ashes on land or water and hold a small, private ceremony—no permit is required.” Please refer to the site link below Queensland Government Website Would you like your ashes scattered? If so where? Put your requests on paper. Why not fill out My Funeral Planner? Let your family know your funeral wishes How much does a Direct Cremation Cost? All our cremation prices are on our website Do not hesitate to contact Cherish Funerals on 1300 854 363 if we can be of any assistance to you.

      Thanks for your email peter. I would imagine you could. You would need to check with local authorities to confirm this.

      Kind Regards
