A unique cremation ash-scattering location: The Holy Land

Choosing the right ash-scattering location for your loved one can be a difficult decision. In order to make that choice easier, a new company called Holy Land Ash Scattering is offering their services to families. This firm will take an individual’s remains and scatter them in a location that is ripe in Biblical history.

Remains will be placed in a memorial garden that sits atop a hill overlooking the Sea of Galilee. According to many Bible scholars, the spot is close to where Jesus once prayed and performed miracles, one of which was walking on water. The company’s president, Larry Deveret, claims there is a  great deal of interest in the services he offers, especially among Christians.

The memorial garden is in a private location that is not open to the public. Each person’s ashes are scattered in a private ceremony that is filmed so that it can be downloaded and viewed online by friends and family members. The company also provides a certificate of scattering, which includes the date, time, and geographical coordinates where the ashes were distributed.

The price of ash scattering includes the cost of picking them up from a funeral home and then shipping them to the Holy Land. After that, a date and time will be set for the memorial service. Once it is complete, an email will be sent with the video link, and the commemorative certificate and DVD will be mailed to the next of kin.

Cremation has more than doubled in the past decade and a half, with nearly 42% of all people now choosing cremation over burial. This has left many funeral homes with a dilemma, as choosing a final resting place is somewhat of a spiritual decision for many. It can also be a difficult decision for the family members of the deceased if he or she did not specify a location for the ashes to be distributed before passing. By offering their ash scattering services near the Sea of Galilee, Holy Land Ash Scattering hopes to make that decision a little better for many families.
