Ash Scattering Services
You’ve planned for all the important events in your life – marriage, education, and career ectara, so why would you leave this last critical decision for someone else to make?
And even if you’ve already planned to be cremated, you’re still only half way there. What will happen to your ashes after cremation? Does your family know your wishes? And do you want them to be left with the burden of making that decision in the midst of their sorrow?
Give them this one last gift – peace of mind that they carried out all of your final wishes.
We can’t remove the sadness of their loss. But we can remove the extra steps involved in laying their loved one to rest. Both you and your family can “Rest Ashured” that your remains will be treated with dignity, honor, and respect after your death.
How it Works
Once you have selected and purchased a scattering option, you will receive a package in the mail with all the necessary materials your loved ones need to properly send your remains to Rest Ashured. This package will include the boxes, label, instruction, tape… Everything.
Their only part in this process will be to follow the packing instructions and send it to us when the time is right. We’ve thought of everything, so they don’t have to.
When we receive the package, we will respectfully scatter the ash, then send to your designated caretaker a Certificate of Release, including the date and location of the scattering.
While the future is still uncertain, his beautiful and peaceful final resting place is not, and we can not thank you enough.
Thank you for your kindness and professionalism. You made me feel comfortable in my time of concern [about planning for my future scattering site].

Mountain Views Planning:
When the time comes, your ashes will be scattered with care on our private property, which overlooks the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and portions of the James River. An engraved Memorial Stone, made to read “In memory of (your name)”, will be placed in the scatter garden.
Tree Dedication Planning:
If you wish, we will plant an evergreen or deciduous tree on our secluded private property, located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Once your order is placed, we will plant the tree in your honor. Then, when the time comes, we will respectfully incorporate your ashes with fresh ground cover around the base of the tree. We will also have an engraved Memorial Stone, made to read “In memory of <name>”, placed beneath the tree.
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
About us and why we began:
We are a small family owned business dedicated to honoring God and all His creation. One way we feel we can best do that is to offer the land He’s blessed us with to others in their time of grief and/or need of a final resting place. Our goal is to provide excellent communication with anyone who contacts us, and to perform an honorable scattering of a loved one’s ashes.
It was after the death and cremation of a close relative, and thinking of how thankful we were to have a place to scatter the ashes of our loved ones, that we began to consider how others who didn’t have such a place might feel. What were their options? After much consideration and prayer, we felt we had finally discovered the reason why we were blessed with such an amazing piece of land.
Initially, our focus was on those who had inherited ashes – people that were looking for an affordable and honorable place to lay them to rest. 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 – many more than we had expected. The reasons ranged 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 be scattered in a natural location versus an urn or mausoleum.
And finally, after realizing that we could donate more of our time and money to charitable organizations that we support, it became an obvious answer to the question that started out about the needs of others. We had come full circle and not even realized it… We could serve others at the beginning and the end of this process. And so Rest Ashured was born.
