How we began sending ashes into space

About us

Celestial Rise was dreamt up a few years ago following the bereavement of a dear friend’s father. The concept of sending ashes into space was developed until Celestial Rise was officially formed in 2015.

Two life long friends, Nick and Scott, believed that memorial services didn’t have to be sad. They wanted people to celebrate the lives of their loved ones with a special ceremony, often months after a funeral, challenging and offering an alternative to the age-old memorial traditions, whist being able to do something incredible – like sending ashes into space.

Sending ashes into space is already a unique way of scattering your loved one’s ashes – but it’s the draw of being able to offer our customers the chance to say farewell, in their own way and at their own pace, that drove the creation of Celestial Rise.

We help you create the perfect day by gathering your friends and family, even your pets, for a celebration of a loved one’s life. What better way to send ashes into space than with our specially engineered 100% green launch balloon. So, you can count on us to send your loved one’s ashes to the edge of space, where they will float under the stars for eternity.

We have a close-knit team, with every member sharing the philosophy of delivering a service of unrivaled quality, flexibility, and reliability, whilst maintaining the utmost respect for our customers. Our goal is to ensure that you have the perfect day, celebrating your loved one’s life with an intimate, personalised ceremony.
