Our environmentally-friendly balloons will carry ashes to a height of up to 100,000 ft, where they will be released from a lightweight urn into the stratosphere, so that they may circulate the globe.
Our service is totally unique and a wonderful way to celebrate the life of your loved one, by giving them the final journey to commemorate a lifetime.
Stardust Ashes was founded by Chester Mojay-Sinclare in 2011 and was inspired by Spudnik 2, a space project involving a local primary school in Devon, England. The project was set-up by Chester to help educate the school children about physics and involved the launch and retrieval of a potato from near space.
The whole idea totally captured the imaginations of the children and everyone who heard about the project. It was featured in many international newspapers.
A few months after the original project took place, the idea of Stardust Ashes was born, when a member of Chester’s family suggested that it would be a wonderful idea to scatter ashes into the stratosphere.
Sadly, only a few months later there was a bereavement in the family and on September 4th, 2011 the first ash scattering took place in East Anglia, England. The scattering was held to commemorate the life of Pat Sinclare, Chester’s devoted and loving grandmother, who he misses deeply.
