Funeral directors, A.W. Lymn The Family Funeral Service has been reflecting on its partnership with the world’s first and only service that scatters cremated ashes in space.

As more people are opening up to futuristic ideas about what will happen to them when they die, the service has started to increase in popularity with those looking for an alternative to a traditional funeral.

Ashes are taken up 10,000 feet in an Aura Flights vessel and released into the stratospheric winds, where they travel around the planet multiple times for around three to six months, before returning to earth in the form of rain or snowflakes.

A.W. Lymn managing director Matthew Lymn Rose said: “We are proud to partner with Aura to provide this wholly unique and thoughtful service to our customers.

“We put the wishes of our clients first and aim to provide them with the goodbye they desire, whatever that may be.

“As more people begin to consider alternative methods to a traditional burial, it’s important that we continue to evolve our offering in line with the needs of those who trust us to help plan what will happen to them when they die.

“With Aura, we can be sure that our customers are referred to a caring and professional service that will support them through the entire process.”

A.W. Lymn has been working in conjunction with Aura Flights since 2017 and has referred six people to the service so far.

Samantha Richardson, general manager at Aura, added: “A.W. Lymn are leading the drive for innovation in the funeral industry.

“It’s a pleasure to work with them to bring this incredible memorial service to the families under their care.”
