Scattering Ashes in the Memorial Garden
Ashes can be scattered on the Ashes Memorial Garden in Darwen Old Cemetery, by week day appointment.
A member of staff from Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council's cemeteries team will meet you at the Garden to witness the scattering, or to carry it out for you.
The Council can then keep an official record that the ashes have been laid to rest there, both to complete their records and to provide a trace for future generations of your family.
If the cremation took place at Pleasington Crematorium, there is no paperwork or fee required. If the cremation took place elsewhere, you will need to send in a certificate of cremation and the scattering fee of £26.00 (2011) to the Cemetery Office, prior to your appointment.
To make your arrangements, please ring the Cemetery Office on
Tel:0845 6066612 and staff will be happy to help.
