"Scatter Day" Providing Free Final Resting Place for Cremated Remains of Loved Ones

Larkin Mortuaries & Cemeteries invite those seeking a final resting place for the cremated remains or ashes of a loved one to their annual "Scatter Day." Pre-registration is required and space is limited.

Cremation is becoming an increasingly popular choice over burial and statistics show that 1-in-5 households have a loved one’s remains at home. Oftentimes, the family doesn’t know what to do with them. Many families who wish to scatter the ashes are unsure of how to do so or where. Scatter Day is meant to ease this process while also honoring those who have passed.

"Scatter Day will give families the opportunity to come to Larkin Sunset Gardens with their loved one's cremated remains and take that final step to closure," said Rob Larkin, Executive Vice President of Larkin. "Families hold on to the remains often because they're not ready to let go, or in other cases, they're unaware of other options. Our goal is to offer a way to memorialize a passed family member in a beautiful, permanent memorial without charge.”

Cremated remains will rest in a beautiful ossuary which is an underground receptacle where ashes are placed with those of others. Included is the engravement of your loved one's name on the collective upright granite memorial at the ossuary at Larkin Sunset Gardens. Please note that an Authorization and Acknowledgment form must be completed prior to the placement of cremated remains. Copies of a Certificate of Cremation and Cremation Permit are also required.
