What happens after cremation

Garden of Remembrance

If the next of kin have requested that the ashes be dispersed at Mortonhall, they will be buried in our Garden of Remembrance.  This is a lawn area marked by a large white cross.  No form of marker is allowed on the garden.

It is also possible to bury ashes within the garden if a cremation has taken place elsewhere.  Your Funeral Director can arrange this for you, or you can contact us directly.
