The Gardens of remembrance proved an area where the cremated remains of a loved one my be scattered. In Sidmouth cemetery there is also an area for the interment of ashes in un-purchased graves. When ashes have been scattered in Seaton garden of rest  a plaque with the deceases name, year of birth and year of death must be purchased to place on the wall of remembrance.
