People often request to have their ashes sent up in a rocket or a big firework – to “Go out with a bang”.

This is perfectly possible, but unfortunately not in one rocket.

Firework rockets can only carry a very small amount, even the large specially made rockets we use.

A firework rocket can carry about 50 grams of cremation ashes, and to scatter all the cremation ashes would require around 60 rockets, which is expensive.

The other practical issue with using rockets is they are very susceptible to the wind, and so sometimes can’t be used safely if the wind is too strong or in the wrong direction.

If you want all the cremation ashes to be scattered and at the same time grant the final wish then all our scattering ashes fireworks displays can have 6 rockets included in the display as an optional extra, so that an amount of the ashes go up in a rocket whilst the rest is scattered by other types of fireworks.

Cost – £250 for 6 rockets as an optional extra
