There are places in our beautiful gardens at Walton Lea Crematorium where we can scatter the ashes of your loved one. This can take place any time after cremation, and can be done even if the cremation didn’t take place at Walton Lea.

If you would like to arrange a strewing, please let us know.

We have two scattering areas, the seasonal meadows and the woodland walk. 

Seasonal meadows

Trees and shrubs surround our beautiful meadows. We cut the meadow every year after the summer season. In the new year, we prepare the ground so it’s ready for us to sew wildflower seeds in the spring time.

Woodland walk

The woodland walk has a soft gravel pathway, with bluebells and wild flowers and a natural pond to one side. It’s a beautiful, natural, environmentally-friendly area and so we don’t maintain it regularly.

Costs

To strew the cremated remains:

  • If the cremation took place at Walton Lea: No charge
  • If the cremation took place elsewhere: £68.00

To make an appointment to witness a strewing:

  • Monday - Thursday: £46.00
  • Saturday - Sunday: £56.00

The costs for strewing in the Sweet Dreams Baby Garden are different, find out more about our beautiful baby gardens.

Memorials

After the strewing, you may wish to commemorate your loved one with a memorial, such as a plaque, vase, bench or an entry in the Book of Remembrance. Find out more about memorials at Walton Lea Crematorium.

Interment

Instead of strewing, you may prefer to inter the ashes in a plot in our Garden of Remembrance, or in one of our vaults. Find out more about interment at Walton Lea Crematorium.
