Ash Scattering Services
Once the Memorial Service has been performed, and you are ready, let us help you say goodbye by laying your loved one to rest.
Do we handle ash scattering for pets?
Yes. Although it wasn’t in our initial plan, due to the many requests for our four-legged friends we have made a separate scattering area for God’s special creatures.
We’re located in Central Virginia, but the nature of our service allows us to provide service to anyone with a valid U.S. shipping address.
Initially, we were only considering the needs of those who had inherited ashes – people that were looking for an affordable and honorable place to relocate them. We wanted to fill that need while also providing legal, simple, and beautiful options. Then, as we talked with family, friends, and coworkers, we discovered that many people are now choosing cremation over burial – more than we had expected. The reasons range from the expense of burials to the transient nature of our society now. (Whereas generations of a family would all be buried in the same cemetery, people are now much less likely to stay in their hometown.) And many expressed their desire to have ashes scattered in a natural location versus an urn or mausoleum.
We take all necessary steps to abide by all US laws regarding the mailing and scattering of ashes. For instance, we use only the USPS for packaging materials and carrier service, as this is the only legal means of transporting ashes. Furthermore, we use only private property for the scattering and planting, and strictly follow EPA regulations for all ocean releases.
At this time, our Mountain View Property is still very much in its natural state, and cleared only enough to enhance the beautiful views. Unfortunately, creating public access would require changes to the land that would prevent us from offering a truly peaceful and serene final resting place.
Why Rest Ashured?
We are a small family owned business that is dedicated to honoring God and all of His creation.
Our goal is to provide our customers with confidence that we will treat their loved one’s remains with dignity, honor, and respect.
