How to Spread Ashes in Union, NJ

Is it illegal to spread ashes in Union?

No, it is not illegal to spread ash from a cremated body in New Jersey. There is no state-wide ban around the spreading of human ashes. However, spreading ashes on public property will require state approval and private properties may prohibit spreading ashes without permission. Check with local authorities and or your funeral director for details
It is, however, important to be mindful of others when spreading ashes. Even though ashes from the cremation process are completely non-toxic, spreading them in a crowded area could make some people uncomfortable. We recommend avoiding urban areas and venturing into the picturesque surroundings of Union. Learn more about cremation FAQs here.

Where to scatter ashes in Union, New Jersey

nion, NJ hosts a wide variety of idyllic, and peaceful spots that would be perfect for an intimate and meaningful scattering.
You can also scatter your loved one’s ashes at (public properties require permission):

  • The South Mountain Reservation
  • The Watchung Reservation
  • Nomahegan Park
  • Hollywood Memorial Park (scattering garden)

How to Spread Ashes After A Cremation in Union, NJ

In the wind :

If you choose to scatter your loved one’s remains yourself, we highly recommend the use of a scattering tube. Scattering tubes allow for easy and elegant dispersing of ashes in the wind. Simply remember to face away from the wind. Also known as carrying urns, they are specifically designed for outdoor dispersal, something a more traditional urn can make difficult and awkward.

In the Ocean:

The EPA is clear that any disposal of human remains at sea needs to take place at least 3 miles from shore. If you are considering committing ashes to the ocean in a container, it needs to be biodegradable and may require a burial at sea permit. Rent or charter a boat on a day with a calm sea and either disperse the ashes into the wind or gently scatter them on the water surface.

At the Beach:

Although scattering cremated remains at the beach sounds perfect for the beach love.

In the River:

If you want to use the Delaware river, we suggest gently spreading the ashes near the water surface, preferably on a day without much wind. Try to do so at least 1 mile away from any riverside buildings or facilities. Not only will it prevent any complaints from property owners, but it also makes for a more personal farewell.

In the Ground:

You can also bury the ashes at a place of your choosing. To do so, dig a shallow trench and pour the remains into it. Cover it up with soil and take a moment to remember. Do not bury the urn. If you want to store the urn and the ashes somewhere other than home, consider a burial plot at your local cemetery or a place in a vault.

Whichever option suits you best, feel free to raise a glass with family members and friends during the scattering, celebrate a life lived and memories cherished.

The Highest Standards of Identification and Tracking

To maintain the highest ethical standards and to protect the crematory industry as a whole, Simple Cremation of New Jersey enforces a strict Identification and Tracking Process. Our funeral directors and qualified staff personally escort each of the deceased to our licensed and inspected cremation facility, Paradise Valley Crematory in Cresco, PA. Each decedent is labeled with a personal bar code which follows the person throughout the cremation process. These steps help to ensure that the correct person is being cremated and it also safeguards the identity of the cremated remains your family will receive. Commitment from our funeral professionals who understand what you are going through in such a challenging time and support in your time of grief are what have earned us the trust and respect of our client families.

Bar Code System

This is an internal system that is managed by our funeral service management software. We track the decedent from arrival at the funeral home care center, transporting to the crematory, date stamped when the cremation takes place and finally placement of remains in an urn and returned to the family. The website will not be a part of the barcoding process.

Transporting Cremation Remains Via Mail

Simple Cremation of NJ offers the possibility for remains to be mailed from the service provider to families across the United States. It is part of our standard service and we closely follow any changes in regulation with regards to shipping cremated remains.

(Currently, USPS is the only carrier authorized to do so.)

We are very familiar with their requirements and work with our partner funeral homes to make sure such precious cargo is properly dispatched. Should the remains stay unclaimed for 2 weeks, they will be returned to the partner funeral home who will either arrange transport once again or arrange a convenient time for you to receive them directly.

Direct Cremation

We offer the ability to arrange a cremation without any funeral or memorial service attached. This simply means that you will not be paying to use any of our online or physical facilities. It is a popular alternative for people who want to organize their own gatherings at home or elsewhere.

Even the simplest of informal gatherings can go a long way towards processing grief. It helps everyone involved to reflect on and share memories of the person they have lost. People often feel pressured to follow traditional norms around saying goodbye, but the truth is, every life is unique.

There is no one size fits all solution to pay your final respects. Those closest to the departed should feel free to celebrate a life lived and memories to cherish in whatever way they feel is appropriate.

They may be gone but they were here and are remembered.

Simple Cremation of New Jersey helped me through the worst experience of my life. I never imagined there was a service that would allow me to make cremation arrangements in the privacy of my own home. During my time of grief, your website was not only easy to navigate, but also provided everything I needed to make the provisions for my son’s cremation, at an affordable price. Thank you so much for making this horrific episode endurable.
