Ashes scattering at Sea

Ashes scatterings may take place on the Shieldhall public sailings on Monday 29th May and Sunday 3rd September 2017.

  • Sunday 3rd September – Bournemouth Air Festival Sailing and Merchant Navy Day Service – Departing Poole Quay at 10am, returning at 7pm.

During both of these trips, Shieldhall will anchor for a short period, for a service and ashes scattering at sea to take place. The Reverend Dennis Mould will be on board to conduct the service and scattering.
