Is it legal to store fireworks at home?

You are also allowed to store upto 50 kilograms Net Explosive Content of fireworks for no longer than 21 days.

When happens if it raining?

Your Heavenly Stars Firework will fire in the rain and the effects will go to the same height. We recommend that your wrap your firework in cling film to protect it. Fireworks will fire through a single thin layer of cling film. The green fuse that you light is the most susceptible to damp conditions. Do not leave your fireworks out in the rain or on damp ground for a long period before firing.

What happens to the ashes when the firework is fired?

The ashes are evenly distributed and combined with each tube of the fireworks and are ejected into the air when each shot explodes.

Lighting Fireworks

Every Heavenly Stars order includes a Guide to Safety. Always read the instructions on your Heavenly Stars Fireworks carefully, well before the event. On the night, it is advisable to wear gloves, ear, head and eye protection. Avoid loose or unbuttoned clothing. When unpacking the Heavenly Stars Fireworks keep away from naked flames and inflammable material. Never smoke when handling or lighting fireworks. Always light fireworks at arms length, and under no circumstances lean over a firework. Never go back to a firework if it fails to ignite.

Responsibility for your Heavenly Star Firework Limited Display?

The Site – Ensure you obtain permission from the landowner where the display is to take place. Allow a minimum of 25 metres safety distance from the crowd to the fireworks. Firers must be 18 years of age or over and should be familiar with the firework being used. Please ensure that all pets and livestock are clear of firing, safety and fall-out area. Heavenly Stars Fireworks Limited takes no responsibility or liability for your chosen display area.

What can happen to the cremation ashes?

In 80% of cases the cremation ashes are strewn or buried in the gardens of remembrance at the crematorium. The alternative is to remove cremation ashes from the crematorium in a suitable urn for dispersion elsewhere. This may be a burial in a family grave or by strewing the ashes at another crematorium or a loved-ones favourite spot. However, it must be borne in mind that when ashes are strewn in other places, e.g. graves, churchyards, or any public places etc., prior permission must be sought and any local rules or regulations obeyed.

How do I know I will get the right cremation ashes?

Every Heavenly Stars order is given a unique tracking number, which enables each order to be monitored through every process. On arrival of the ashes identity information is placed on the outside of the cremation ash container. The identification is maintained by only having a single person’s ashes in the incorporation room at any one time. A unique Certificate of Authenticity is created with the dispatch documentation. They are stored until the agreed dispatch date and a signature will be required upon delivery back to you.

  • “Hi Denise, I’ve been meaning to email you to say thank you so much for the fireworks you did for us with Caz’s ashes in. They were fantastic and the highlight of our celebration of Caz’s life that we had on November 5th, which would’ve been her 49th birthday. We had all her friends and family there and with some champagne and a few cocktails we sent her off in style. Everyone was so impressed with the rockets and letters, in fact several people thought it was a fantastic idea for themselves when the time comes…

    Once again our heartfelt thanks for allowing us the chance to honour Caz’s wishes in such style.”
