- The 9 Things No One Tells You About Scattering Ashes.
We were like, "Oh my God, where do we put these? Mum placed them in the pantry. Then, when my son came round, he looked in this purple bag and said, "Ooh, what's in here, Mum? He was a bit drunk and he staggered round the house with this bag. He kept opening cupboard drawers and saying "Nah, you can't put Grandad in here. Initially, we thought we would take them to Whitley Bay lighthouse and scatter them in the sea. We went and looked at it — the water looked hostile and choppy, and a bit creepy. We also felt a bit squeamish about the whole thing of scattering the ashes. It has opened up an enormous debate in our family about where we are going to put him.
A couple of times it has verged on the acrimonious. My brother Derek does not want to talk about this at all. My sister in Bolton has had varying viewpoints — at one stage she thought of the lighthouse and then the river Coquet, and it has worried her constantly. Mum has had varying viewpoints, too, and then she had a dream that he wasn't to leave the house — he was to be kept here. But this is a council property.

She said, "I can't be taking these ashes to Africa, and I've had a dream they are to go out in the garden! We need to settle this matter once and for all. So now the family are going to come up on 24 March. I've bought a proper casket with a brass plaque and we are going to place the casket in the garden in a specific spot where we can go and reclaim it at a later date.
My sister and I have decided that when something does happen to Mum — she is 83 now — then we will resettle both of their ashes together somewhere else and probably pay for a plot in the churchyard because we can't bring ourselves to do the whole ashes bit. His funeral — as funerals go — was lovely. Now we are having to deal with it all again. It brings it all back. My advice to anyone else would be, for goodness sake, don't put it on hold.
