Here goes!,

My Dad suddenly and unexpectedly died yesterday, I think yesterday was definitely the worst day of my life. His first holiday on the broads was back in 1966 aged 12, Having usually 2 or more holidays every year since, right thru childhood we never went anywhere else, I now have my own family of broads junkies who love every minute of it. They're 15,16 and 19 now tho so will soon be booking their own boats.

Rambling too much I've lost the plot.

The reason for this post was to ask for advice, My dads wish was to have his ashes scattered at wayford brigde as this was his favourite place on the broads, what I would like to know, is this legal?, do we need permission?, if so, who from? and are we likely to get it?

Thanks for listening

Barry

Kind Regards
Barry Walker

Very sorry to be hearing of your sad loss Barry - I would have thought you would have only needed permission if the land was privately owned ,hopefully someone will know the full legalities and help you out at this sad time

Barry, firstly my condolences.

It is fairly common practice and to-date I have never heard of any objection. Indeed I was involved in scattering the ashes of a good friend.

There is no reason why you shouldn't hire a dayboat and find a quiet corner to spread his ashes.

So sorry to hear of your loss, Barry. A number of members have loved ones' ashes returned to the Broads, I am not sure there is official support for the practice, but it certainly happens.

Best wishes,

Pauline

In all honestly I would simply do it. Common sense will guide you. Our the local speedboat club recently spread the ashes of a departed member at the start of a race. The members then raced through the area where the ashes were spread. A fitting gesture in my opinion.

could be worse, a friend of mine who did reenactment asked that his ashes be scattered from the top of Rochester castle while a re-enactment was in progress in the grounds, this was duly done on a slightly damp day, the scattering party came down from the tower to find the ashes on the front entrance stairway to the castle where they had got damp and clumped, they would have sorted them out but as they got there one of the curators stumped up with a broom, muttering under his breath about bloomin children. Exactly as our departed friend would have liked it, the humour of the situation would have been just his thing.
Anyway many condolances on your situation, as others have said, just go for it.

Hi All,

Firstly thank you all for you're kind words and advice ref:- The scattering of my dads ashes at Wayford Bridge...

After more than a week of waiting the post mortem has been carried out and the result was a massive heart attack, NO suffering involved though so that's a bonus.



Kind Regards
Barry Walker
