Sikh ashes scattering

We used Bancroft Cruisers to scatter my partner’s mother’s ashes, and I would heartily recommend them for this service.
The staff, in particular Fiona, were extremely friendly, and very knowledgeable on traditional Sikh ceremonies appropriate for a scattering.
The music and hymns provided via the sound system were very fitting, and they made sure to explain the hymns chosen to those of the group who aren’t Sikh, so they could appreciate the ceremony properly.
Refreshments were provided, including homemade spiced tea, which was lovely. The staff had even made a small diya for the ceremony, as it was also Diwali when we did the scattering. This extra touch was extremely appreciated.
The boat cruise was great too – we went down the river to a location just outside of Stratford, and the route was very scenic (even if the weather was a bit gloomy!). The spot at which we scattered the ashes was very tranquil, and the side of the river could be reached via footpath, if we wanted to visit the site again on foot.
Thank you Fiona and Co. My partner sends her well wishes.

Sikh ashes scattering

Fiona was absolutely fantastic from booking the initial date to the ceremony and we can’t thank her enough. She thought of every little detail, the Kirtan, Ardas – the scented sticks (toof). The crew on the day were amazing not rushing, everything was really calm and peaceful and just how we planned it for dad. The grandchildren all got involved in the ceremony and we took our own (environment friendly) balloons with us for them them to let go of. Fiona had already kindly printed off little labels with the Kanda sign on them for the children to all write their messages. It was a beautiful day and as the water urn touched the water the sun came out. We also threw flowers into the water.
We arranged to have the refreshments too and we have to say Fiona masala Tea was just amazing. Our dad loved his Indian tea and we all raised our cups to our dad.
Thank you so much Fiona and your Team for giving dad such a smooth, peaceful and memorable final journey.

The prayers on the boat was beautiful and soothing. Fiona really went out her way to make my family feel at ease. We can’t thank you enough Fiona. X
