Are there any restrictions on the movement of ashes in and out of Jersey?

There are no restrictions on the movement of cremated ashes in or out of the Island.

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.

The Jewish Cemetery

The Jewish Cemetery is at Westmount Road, St Helier.

Grave Maintenance Service by Cemeteries Caretakers

The sextons of Parish cemeteries will keep grave surrounds cut and tidied, and if asked, will cut grassed plots and trim shrubs on graves.

Purchasing a grave

Funeral directors arrange the purchasing of grave plots at the time they are needed or in advance.
