You might already have the perfect place in mind, but if not, we have a list of beautiful locations in South Wales where your loved one could be laid to rest. Whilst we understand that this is a very intimate decision to make, it might help you find the place you’ve been looking for.

Rhossili Bay

Many people wish to be scattered near the sea once they pass. It also provides a tranquil place for families and friends to revisit time and again to remember their loved ones. South Wales has many beautiful beaches that offer an idyllic location for scattering ashes. Rhossili Bay on the Gower Peninsula is a truly stunning location that has been voted as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. It has stunning views, unspoilt scenery and over 3 miles of sandy beach. Whether you wish to scatter the ashes in the sea or find a secluded area on land, this beach has many secluded areas that would be perfect for holding a private ceremony.

Cadw Welsh Historic Sites

Wales has many magnificent buildings that could provide a unique location to scatter ashes. Cadw look after 130 historic sites across Wales and accept requests for ashes to be scattered on any of these sites. These include some of the UK’s most impressive buildings, many of which are located in stunning settings. If your loved one had a passion for history or a personal attachment to one of these locations, this could be the perfect place for them to rest. All Cadw requests is that you write to them beforehand to inform them of your plans and secure a date.

Brecon Beacons Mountains

Mountains can be a touching place to commemorate a loved one, particularly if they are someone who loved being in nature. The Brecon Beacons National Park has breath-taking views across the entire mountain range and plenty of walking routes to lead you to a perfect location. You do not need to ask for permission to scatter ashes in the Brecon Beacons, although it is probably best to go at a quieter time to ensure that your goodbye isn’t interrupted by other walkers.

What is a Direct Cremation?

A Direct Cremation is an alternative to the traditional funeral. This involves the cremation of the deceased without a funeral service. A Direct Cremation is generally the most economic option because costs of the coffin, preparation of the body, funeral service and expensive transportation are not included. However, many people choose Direct Cremations for reasons other than expense, for example:

  • - Wanting to have a memorial at a different time to the cremation
  • - Expressed desire from the deceased to not have a ceremony
  • - Individuals with relatives who face big physical or geographical challenges in coming together for a ceremony

The prices quoted for Direct Cremations include:

  • All charges, meetings and paperwork for the cremation
  • Collection of deceased and care prior to cremation
  • A simple coffin and urn for the ashes
  • Cremation fees and delivery of ashes to the family
