Welcome to

Girl in a jacket

We welcome all religions and also guests who prefer not to have a religious ceremony.

For your ashes scattering we take family and friends onto the beautiful River Avon on our heated cruising boat, The Rita Ellen.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions the maximum number of guests is currently twenty (20). Plus children U5 on laps & priests.

The River Avon rises near Rugby, flows past Coventry, Leamington Spa & Warwick and then into Stratford upon Avon. The Avon joins the River Severn at Tewkesbury and then flows into the sea. Your loved ones ashes may be scattered in a peaceful and pretty spot downstream some distance away from the busy Stratford upon Avon town centre. You may scatter ashes with or without a religious ceremony. We respect your choice.

Here are a selection of things that we offer...
