Ash Scattering Services & Online Memorials In 2020 Disrupts The Funeral Industry

Amid the COVID-19 crisis and the rising number of deaths, funeral homes are conducting funerals online.

A leading green memorial company is currently in the middle of an online funeral revolution. With nationwide shutdowns, people being limited to numbers, or not able to attend funerals at all. The Living Urn® and Ecorial® have come up with unique alternative solutions, including launching online memorials, ash scattering services, giving families the ability to permanently record the date, time and coordinates of an outdoor memorial, and informing the general public of the cremation and burial options available to them, even in a pandemic.

Planning a memorial service or funeral is always challenging. In most cases, family members need to organize everything and inform loved ones while dealing with significant grief. The pandemic has made what was once a complex process now immensely difficult. The current restrictions on many aspects of human life is having a huge impact on families who lose a loved one and need to make funeral arrangements. Having a memorial that can be shared with anyone online, or more conveniently with an app, can bring families together to remember loved ones lost, even in the midst of a pandemic. The additional ash scattering services, which you can have recorded and the ashes scattered at a destination of your choosing, can also ensure your loved ones last wishes are honored, even if you cannot travel.

Mark Brewer, company President, commented, “We understand this is a difficult time for families, especially for those who lose a loved one. We’re doing everything we can to help make it easier on families – this includes providing a unique and caring scattering service where a loved one’s ashes can be scattered at some of the most beautiful places in our country. We also offer a patented system, making it easy for families to do tree burials with The Living Urn at home, and provide helpful tools with our new Ecorial app to make it easy on families to mark the spot of a memorial event and create an online memorial that they can share with family and friends.”

The Living Urn® and Ecorial® continue to support communities as they find ways to remember those they have lost, while still maintaining social distancing, and often even when no one can travel either to a funeral, or to a scattering service.
