Can I scatter ashes in the River Thames?

Our advice is to find a suitable and safe location next to the River Thames, and a quiet time of the day.

  • Do not place the container or any plastic in the water.

  • We request ashes are not scattered from bridges. 

Additional guidance is published by the Environment Agency.
