Scattering Urns: Many who choose to scatter the ashes on their own will often use what is called a scattering urn. These are urns that are specially designed to add dignity as well as eas the scattering process. Scattering can be messy work and a scattering urn can keep the ashes in a respectable container and then release the ashes in the desired manner, depending on the location you choose. For over the water it makes sense to use a biodegradable urn that will float and then dissolve when it sinks to the bottom. Scattering tubes and birdhouse scattering urns are ideal for scattering over land.
