    Henry Milhollin with the City of Douglas asks....

    "Do any cemeteries have a place for a family to scatter cremains? If so, do you have any rules or regulations concerning scattering? "

    No scatter gardens in Savannah. Scattering is prohibited in our cemeteries. All cremains must be in a sealed container and buried or placed in a columbarium. Occasionally, we catch people burying ashes without an interment/inurnment order. Cremains are difficult to keep track of as it is, it would, in my opinion, be extremely difficult to prevent people from scattering ashes without consent.
