Ashes in Fireworks: Scattering Ashes in the Sky

Ashes in Fireworks

Help your loved one go out with a bang by incorporating some of their ashes into a firework display. Heavenly Stars has already done this for many of our customers and we wanted to share their details with you.


Scattering ashes in a spectacular way


Scattering ashes for someone you love is a deeply meaningful act. You want to ensure that it is a special and momentous moment. Some choose to scatter them in our tranquil gardens of remembrance. Others opt to receive the ashes in a graceful wooden urn, in order to cast them into the wind at a treasured spot. 


Or, perhaps you are seeking a more memorable scattering ceremony to commemorate your family member or friend? With the help of Heavenly Stars, Direct Cremation can arrange an unforgettable farewell on your behalf.


What do Heavenly Stars offer?


Heavenly Stars incorporates the ashes of your loved ones in their fireworks. They are then launched into the sky to put on a fantastic display. In an explosive tribute to their life, their ashes will be scattered hundreds of feet up in the night sky. You will be able to watch this final blaze of glory, surrounded by friends and family, and even choose the colours, effects and music to which it takes place.


What services are available for scattering ashes?

Heavenly Stars offers two unique services for scattering ashes: professional and self-fired displays. Heavenly Stars offers four self-fired tribute packages with a diverse mix of both effects and duration. Launch your chosen rockets from the comfort of your home or take them to a much-loved location for a truly personal commemoration. Heavenly Stars leaves you in control of exactly how and when to create your own special ceremony and you can have the fireworks containing your loved one’s ashes delivered directly to you.


Alternatively, With their professional displays, Heavenly Stars’ compassionate team provides a spectacular and personalised firework display just for you. Through a professionally fired firework display, you can give your beloved the send-off they deserve. You can tailor your tribute by choosing the colours, the types of fireworks and whether or not to include musical choreography.
