Laying the ashes

by on April 19, 2013

A neighbour has asked me to conduct a ceremony at Rookwood to lay the ashes of her mother, who died recently. Mum was a devout Catholic, whole family is Catholic.

Said I would.

So, does anyone have any experience in laying ashes? What can you suggest? Liturgy resources?

I’m so often still doing things for the first time…

    Jonathan There is the prayer book an service for the internment of ashes. You use it in conjunction with the burial service . Try the green AAPB book first. If you haven’t one there probably is one in the church otherwise come back to me.

    Grace 2 you.
