the ashes following this cremation, and provide further details in the relevant free text box.
If you choose Option 1 or 2 you may alter your choice, confirmed in writing with your signature,

please advise your funeral director or the crematorium as soon as possible if you change your
mind.
Option 1: Ashes to be scattered / interred / otherwise dealt with by the crematorium
Please give further details of your wishes here, from the options offered by the crematorium, for

Please tick the box below to confirm that you understand this and that you wish to proceed
with the cremation.
