Places to scatter ashes in North Yorkshire

We’ve put together a small list of places in North Yorkshire that you might want to consider:
Scarborough castle and the neighbouring coastline provides a tranquil setting with a historical background. This particular stretch of coastline separates Scarborough’s north and south bays and is a wonderful spot for reflection.
North York Moors National Park
The North York Moors National Park contains a wide variety of scenic locations and for many is a special place. A wonderfully picturesque area of the region, the Park combines rivers, woodland, moorland and the Yorkshire coast all in one area in a way that very few places in the world can.
Clifford’s Tower has allowed family members to scatter ashes of loved ones and its location in central York means that it’s an ideal place for those with a connection to the city.
Yorkshire Dales National Park
The beauty of the North York Moors is matched by the Yorkshire Dales on the west side of the county. With a plethora of walks and the imposing three peaks of Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent and Whernside, the Yorkshire Dales can be a scenic place to scatter the ashes of a loved one.
Rivers are often a popular choice for those we wish to scatter ashes and the River Ouse which runs through the city of York would be the perfect place for such an occasion. With its length scaling 52 miles, you also don’t have to be restricted to scattering ashes just in York, it’s quite easy to find a quieter place where the river flows, in order to peacefully disperse.
Please remember to consult with the local authority or landowner for any permission before scattering ashes.
