Scattering ashes in Spain

Not a pleasant subject to cover but one we get asked a lot about.

Scattering of Ashes.

Ashes cannot be scattered just anywhere in Spain nor in the Sea, near the coast/beach they have to be taken out on a boat a certain distance from the shore, there are certain rules and laws as to the scattering or strewing of them, it is a punishable offence to do this in Spain with fines up to 15,000€ in some areas.  Please contact the local town hall for up to date information as each town hall has its own rules and regulations that need to be followed.

Bringing ashes on the airline.

The carriage of ashes is permitted as cabin baggage, and may be carried in addition to your single permitted piece of normal cabin baggage provided that a copy of the death certificate and the cremation certificate accompanies them. You must ensure that the ashes are securely packaged in a suitable container with a screw top lid and protected against breakage.

A lot of people think you can scatter ashes up at the cross. This is not allowed and, as you say in your article, there is a very large fine if you are caught.

With regard to taking ashes on an aircraft - I did this from Alicante to Gatwick and Heathrow to Miami. I told the airlines beforehand just to be sure it was ok. Both airlines (EasyJet and Virgin Atlantic) were very understanding as were the staff at the airports.

Also, if anyone is interested, I arranged for the ashes to be lowered into the sea from our cruise ship in the Caribbean. This had to be arranged beforehand and the ashes had to be in a special eco-friendly container.

Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying
to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not
seeing very good results. If you know of any please share.
Many thanks!
