Withy Brook's Avatar How disgraceful. No way to find out either, I do not suppose.

ChrisH's Avatar Not squeamish, but poor you... and poor old deceased being dumped.

Faith's Avatar How awful for the poor person who died. How could the person who dumped them, and the flowers think they were doing the right thing in any way whatsoever? I am not squeamish, but that just makes me sad.

Westerwitch's Avatar How bizarre, thoughtless and selfish to the deceased and to you.

Peterwf's Avatar Interestingly when done by the professionals in a garden of remembrance, (assuming the deceased is Christian) the ashes are distributed in a neat cross.
That looks like the ashes were dumped, not scattered.
Not my idea of respect......

Preseli Mags's Avatar The scattering of ashes is banned in some places - where they were becoming too popular and the deceased were everywhere. That does look like a dumped rather than a scattering but I suppose they were doing their best in difficult circumstances.

Personally I prefer the tale of the huntsman who insisted in his will that he wanted his body not to go to waste, but to be fed to his hounds. To comply with the terms of the will he was cremated and the hounds were given the ashes. Very nutritious apparently.

Fennie's Avatar Looking on the bright side they'll be quickly gone, though I suppose you could sweep then up (hoover with an extension?) and put them in an urn?

I am wondering if it were me what I would prefer: to be washed into a contaminated watercourse or to be put in a bottle. And would I confer a special benevolence on anyone putting me in a bottle? What I would say is please take the flowers and use them. After all they are no use to me (ashes that I am). The worst thing about this is not knowing who I was. And the need to create a new identity now. This could turn into a story.

I suppose it's harder to dispose of ashes if you give them a name. But what name? Not a human name, obviously. Firecracker might work.

Anyhow good luck with your new neighbour.

Ivy's Avatar Hope he/she goes haunting the people who did this. In Germany we must bury our deceased/ or their ashes in a cemetery, I always thought this ridiculous until I read your post.

KittyB's Avatar Ugh. I hope it rains on them soon so they will soak away.
How bizarre.

Mountainear's Avatar What a strange thing to do. The detective in me wants to know more and why. Obviously the deceased was loved enough to warrant a little posy of flowers but not enough to make the extra effort.

They'll wash away.

Enjoy Ludlow? Will we see you en route?

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Not exactly what you'd call scattered are they - more dumped!

CalicoKate's Avatar How utterly horrid, and distresspectful to him/her and to you.
