This is essentially what we do here at Casting Ashes®. 

As an act of love and service,  on your behalf we cast ashes.



Connected Through Sculpture

Adding cremation ash to sculpture is a beautiful way to honour someone's essence and celebrate their enduring presence in our lives.


We are Noel & Jill Brennan, a husband and wife team, and our aim is to help you stay connected  to loved ones by  creating  something beautiful - a tangible object to carry with you or something to keep close at home.  We handle the ashes you send us with great care and every part of our process is done lovingly by hand.   When we do a casting we honour the life commemorated by lighting a candle and will  play a piece of music you request for a personal touch.

Inspired by the coastal landscape, our designs bring neutral tones and natural elements into your living space so as to bring a sense of calm and also to blend unobtrusively with your home decor. 

Our designs range from a small pocket pebble to to a memorial garden birdbath so we like to think you will find something here for every taste and budget.

Enjoy browsing our collections and if you don't see what you're looking for please talk to us.  We're always open to new ideas and are currently accepting bespoke commissions.

One-off Pieces of sculpture by Noel Brennan

Cremation ash is mixed into a paste with the cement and applied in layers to a wire frame to achieve striking figurative sculpture. 

NB:  Due to international customs restrictions on the shipment of ashes we are only able to offer our casting ashes service within the UK.




Helping you keep loved ones close.

"I really want you to both know what a fabulous job you have done. 
From start to finish you have treated us with kindness and an understanding you don’t often see these days. 
I can’t thank you enough for going above and beyond for us.  I will be sitting in front of the tv tonight holding my husbands hand and heart and I have you to thank for that."
