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…
