Use a boat to transport the ashes and any people participating.
You can charter a boat operator for a couple hours, and there are even boat operators that specialize in the scattering of ashes. Go online to find options for boat rentals near your chosen destination. Put items made from decomposable materials in the water, if necessary.
You can release flowers into the water, but they should be able to easily decompose. This is one of the rules the US EPA states, and they require that you fill out a form to tell them the details of the event. The form asks for information such as the name of the deceased, the date the scattering took place, and the location of the spreading. Choose a suitable traveling container. While this container will ideally be environmentally-safe, it's okay if it's just a plastic bag or something similar if you bring the container back to shore with you. Avoid bringing a material that will break easily, such as glass.
Divide the ashes up if multiple people will be spreading them. You can separate them into plastic bags, cups, or any other kind of small container. Opt for a water-soluble scattering urn to place the ashes in the ocean. If you want the ashes placed in the ocean without having to physically spread them, you can purchase a water-soluble urn.
After you place the urn in the water, it will dissolve and scatter the ashes in the water. However, England were woeful in reply: all out for only 67, it was their 12th lowest Test score of all time. Josh Hazlewood picked up a five-wicket haul for the visitors and England looked like they had thrown the Ashes away.
In their second innings, Australia scored all out to give themselves a lead of , meaning England needed their highest ever successful run-chase in Test cricket. England reached day four of the Test on for 3, giving themselves a ray of hope. England had only one wicket remaining with 73 more runs needed for victory.
It looked impossible.
Jack Leach joined Ben Stokes in the middle and the two men created a partnership for the ages. Stokes reached his century with a masterful display of batting, while Leach, whose glasses frequently steamed up as the pressure mounted, was the perfect defensive foil. At times, Stokes was so nervous he was unable to watch his partner on strike. In the dying stages, when England needed just two runs, Nathan Lyon fumbled a brilliant chance to run out Leach who was miles from his crease.
The next ball looked like a plumb lbw shout but Australia had burned all their reviews. Leach then scrambled a single off Pat Cummins before Stokes hammered through the covers to complete an astonishing victory. As delirious celebrations swept the ground, Leach planted a smacker on Stokes. The Aussies ran rampant in their first innings, racking up for 8 before declaring.
Steve Smith was once again the main architect of their innings, scoring before being caught by Joe Denly off Joe Root. Smith top scored again in the second innings as Australia declared on for six, setting England a run-chase of When Burns fell for a duck and was instantly followed by Root — out first ball to a monstrous delivery by Pat Cummins — late on day four, England were 0 for 2.
Marsh makes critics eat their words
Only one thing remained to be settled in the fifth Test: could Australia win the Ashes series outright, or could England force a creditable draw? Jos Buttler top scored with Hi Robert. I stand by what I said. It IS accurate. The fact Roy still only averages 38 today, despite boosting his average over the last couple of years in limited appearances, tells the story in itself. Before his big hundred at the end of and a good in limited appearances he was indeed averaging in the low 30s in division one, and not much above that overall.
A couple of years ago he was really struggling with his technique too. Therefore I do have some reservations. At least Roy would go down swinging. A slim chance is better than none! It crossed my mind during the Sri Lanka series—when we should have had the same dilemma had we had the gumption to do the blindingly obvious and drop Jennings—whether there might be worse ideas than giving Chris Woakes a go.

Cumulative averages always by definition understate improvement. If you look at the table you have constructed, which leaves out , there is only one year in the last 5 when he has averaged under 40 but that was runs at 39 in the First Division. I am not sure that Roy is able to play late enough to adjust for the sort of movement that obtains with the Duke ball in Test Matches in England, but the statistics are fine better than your argument. The problem with leaving Root at 4 to me is that we then have to either choose three!
This would effectively mean that Bairstow had to bat in the top four. I would hope that the selectors are continuing to monitor form players around the counties, especially after so many ex players, including the likes of Atherton, a definite red ball specialist, seem to be urging Roys inclusion, at least at the start of the Ashes series. There can be no doubting his talent and ability to make big scores, but can he resist his natural urges to improvise long enough to make an impact against what will be a decent bowling attack.
To me what you have to ask is who would the Aussies rather play against, an experienced and successful international cricketer who would clearly not be intimidated by the prospect or some unknown newcomer to that arena. Australia have a similar decision to make with Finch, who is clearly not expecting an automatic call up to partner Warner, despite his prolific World Cup form.
As you say James it could all be academic anyhow if the hamstring is more serious. In footie it usually means a week lay off, which would give him no time at the crease before the off.

Rushing him back could end his season. Hopefully at some point summer will arrive, so the warmer weather will help. A more interesting immediate issue is the possible recall of Hales, especially if Vince fails to get going. Lets look at the Div Averages. Top of the bowling: Gregory, Leaning, Abbott, Overton — some good bowlers there… but nothing to prepare you for facing Starc. Yes but you have to measure Test potential on something, and there only is the 4 day Championship.
The standard of which, at least in Div 1, is a lot higher than many people think.

Ask Morne Morkel for starters. And not many of the selectors even watch it, Bayliss as well. On Roy, this is the second hamstring injury this season. Lots of the candidates seem to have one good year and then a bad year. Very few openers have been consistent for a number of years apart from Burns. We can all easily say who we should not pick but not many people are giving their opinions on who we should go with as a batting line up. The fact is that no one is guaranteed to step into that opening slot and succeed. We have to play to our strengths and I would go with following.
A few injury prone guys in there and with a long summer we have broad s Curran foakes leach and any one of Vince Clarke on call if we are struggling mid series. I think the central problems here are: 1. Starc, Hazlewood and Cummins is a very good new red ball attack; and 2. Can Roy for example do worse than Jennings?
Yes, the point is that every other possibility looks worse — just as likely to get out quickly, but far less likely to score big runs.
Can I remind people about Marcus Trescothick? He got into the Test side by was of one-day cricket, and had a successful career in tests. Yes but 1 Tresco brought his bat down straight 2 He swung through the line of the ball.
