Scattering the Ashes

Traditions and Locations

When a Hindu or Sikh person dies it is customary to scatter the ashes in running water. This might be a local river or you may wish to take the ashes to India to scatter them in your chosen place.

Asian Funeral Home has a list of local places that are deemed suitable for the scattering of ashes and can advise upon request. We can also assist with urns for the safe transportation of your ashes should you wish to take them abroad.
