Scattering of ashes

Ashes may be brought over to Jersey for scattering. No permit or permission is required but out of courtesy the Constable of the Parish should be advised by letter. Ashes may not be scattered within limits of a cemetery; they have to be placed in a wooden casket and buried. The church minister, priest or a funeral director can advise.

How to find out where someone has recently been buried

You can get information from the funeral directors who keep records. See Funerals Directors.
