scattering ashes in fireworks

Claire Heslop

I would like to give you 5 stars. We purchased the Spirit in the Sky barrage fireworks and with our extended family, tonight we had a celebration of our brother/dad/grandad’s (Bill’s) life. His favourite song happened to be “Spirit in the sky”, so with that playing in the background, we set the fireworks off and off into the sky did Bill go. What a fitting celebration for him, he would have LOVED it. So, thanks for your help, advice and fireworks. You have enabled us to have a fitting celebration for him.

I have been meaning to contact you to say a heartfelt thank you for the tribute fireworks provided. We travelled to Morecambe so that my dad’s 92 year old brother could join in as he hadn’t been able to travel to the funeral. (He did think it was a marvellous plan). We hired a coach to take 11 of us on 4 November on what have been dads 87th birthday. Even the coach driver said what a wonderful tribute it was. My son took over the job of setting them off and found it easy to follow. The whole display was quite simply breath-taking. So we thank you sincerely for the service provided. On behalf of the Robert Vernon Rotheram family and friends

I wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful Heavenly Stars firework display. My husband had asked that his ashes be put in a firework so his friends and family could come together and enjoy the display. We certainly did!! It was a wonderful, colourful display that enthralled us for three breathtaking minutes. He would have loved the display, and it was a fitting way to say goodbye to the light of my life. Thank you for making my dear husband’s wish come true in the most wonderful way

I just wanted to say how absolutely amazing I think your company is. My family have been blown away by the sheer professionalism from you all. We arrived at the shop with my dad’s ashes and the gentlemen there was so kind and respectful and really put my mum at ease who was naturally upset. We collected the fireworks a few hours later and couldn’t believe the size of them! They were fantastic and exactly how my dad would have wanted them. We had a big gathering on the 7th October and the fireworks were nothing short of spectacular. We were thrilled that we came to you. You guided us every step of the way and made us feel comfortable and confident with what we were doing with dads ashes. Again we can’t thank you enough for being so kind and providing such a great product at such a good price. We thoroughly recommend you.

This is a first for us… and we think it’s awesome!  #ashesintofireworks #bespokefunerals

I can’t recommend Heavenly Stars and Dynamic Fireworks enough! The team are polite, kind, helpful, thoughtful and thorough on every level. On Sunday we had a huge memorial display for Ruby Venezuela who’s last wish was to have her ashes fired into the sky in a rocket above Soho. This was choreographed to music and held in St Anne’s Soho, Central London) it was not only spectacular and beautiful, it made many people very happy! And it ran so smoothly, not a fault. Thank you all

My wife always said that when her time came she wanted to go off in a rocket. Thanks to Heavenly Stars Fireworks she got her wish. She went off in Four Rockets and a display box. They were brilliant. On Friday the 22nd of April we sent her off into the night sky. Beautiful surroundings, beautiful weather and a beautiful sunset. There was quite an audience present and each and everyone of them said what a great display it was. Thanks to all the staff at Heavenly Stars, especially Sophie who I had all the correspondence with. She answered every question I asked and kept me up to date with everything that was going on. Excellent service all round. Ronnie, my wife would have loved it.

Saffron Scott

Could not be happier. The fireworks we bought were beautiful and the customer service is amazing! Our package got lost in the mail and it was dealt with promptly and then we had an issue with my Dads cremation certificate but they were so understanding and patient. Such a unique and perfect send off. Recommend to everyone

Candice Baker

I cannot thank you enough for the celebration of life fireworks they were absolutely beautiful ❤️ I highly recommend their services 10/10 *****

Ellabella Sharpe

We ordered fireworks for our Mum and Dads ashes and the service we received was amazing. It was little touches like a call to let us know the ashes had arrived which made a huge difference. The fireworks which arrived promptly were gorgeous, so pretty, easy to light and a fantastic thing for us to set off as a family. We cannot thank this fantastic company enough.

Ross Evans

Our son Alaric had been very specific about how he wanted his ‘send off’. He didn’t want a funeral, but rather a celebration, and said he wanted to go up to the stars in a rocket. Once we found out this could be done, he was happy knowing this would happen.
Heavenly Stars Fireworks were the company we chose, and we are so pleased we did. At a very difficult time in our lives, they helped make the whole process as pain free as possible. They collected our son’s ashes from the funeral director following his private cremation, and their communication throughout was second to none. We were able to discuss the smallest details, including our son’s directive that the four rockets were to be set off by set friends, at set times of a regimental song. The pre rocket fireworks set the scene and we knew at the end of it all, our son had had the perfect celebration of his life, just as he had asked of us. I cannot speak highly enough of the company and of the team that travelled up to Chesterfield Panthers RFC to set and orchestrate the fireworks and rockets. Friends and family have told us since that they have never experienced anything so wonderful, uplifting and spectacular, and that they will remember it forever. Thank you.

Lynette Fisher

We used Heavenly Stars to create a wonderful send off for my Dad. The fireworks were absolutely beautiful and so easy to use and came with clear instructions and safety equipment. It was a fabulous way to celebrate my Dad in a place that meant so much to all my family.

Paul Mizen

I would like to say a big big thank you to both you and your team for giving my beautiful wife Lynn, the most spectacular send off, it was perfect and very befitting, you have done her wish proud and that goes for me, my family and friends, they were all amazed how professional the display was and not what they expected, it far exceeded there were expectations and I believe it’s won a lot of them over in the future plans on how they would like their final journey.

Simon Helliar-Moore

Having used Heavenly Stars in the past for our clients, I had no hesitation in contacting them to assist with providing a firework tribute for a member of my own family. Denise and the team pulled out an amazing service by providing a same day creation. Travelling from Somerset, this service was invaluable to us. Dealing with professionals who really understand and put their customers first is exactly how we run our own business, so to work alongside Heavenly Stars was a dream. The packages on offer are clear and wonderfully priced for the service and presentation of the fireworks. Would highly recommend this service to other Funeral Directors looking for a company to provide firework tributes, but on a personal note as a bereaved family, we couldn’t be happier with the terrific services provided, thank you so very much!

Caroline Benton

I would like to thank you for the 4 Rockets you made for my Husband’s late Mum. We were very impressed and as her wishes were she “went out with a bang” it was very emotional but also a happy celebration as it would have been her 70th Birthday. I can so recommend you for your professional services and once again would like to thank your team for making a wish come true.

Thank you to Heavenly Stars Fireworks for making the whole process as easy as possible, from phone calls and emails to dealing with our venue. Thank you to the guys who came and fired the display. They were unobtrusive, and must have been freezing cold in sub-zero temperatures. Best of all were the fireworks. Truly, amazing, brilliant and everything our daughter hoped it would be. There are too many superlatives to describe the Tribute Display! We all lost it when the sparkling stars exploded, so many happy tears from the 200 adults and children watching. Everyone said it was the best private firework display they had ever seen.

Maria Godden

Thank you so much for the beautiful fireworks for my husband. As this was his wish thank you and the team for making this such an easy process. From calling you to bringing my husband’s ashes to you and the team making them in a 2 hour turnaround. A very compassionate, caring, understanding team that you are. The fireworks were set off on 6th November and were watched by friends and family. I cannot thank you and the team enough. I will always recommend you and so will my funeral director.

Karen Webster

My husband Phill died in February. All through his life he loved fireworks and I think his dream job would have been to be a pyro technician. Bonfire night was a special time for him especially as it was so close to his birthday. Often over the years he would say that he would like his ashes to go up in a rocket so this November we made his wish come true. Can’t thank Heavenly Stars enough. They were very professional and the rockets were delivered very quickly. We had a winter BBQ and invited lots of friends and family to celebrate my husband’s life. He would have really loved to have seen it and I know he would have approved of how we celebrated. Thank you again

Thank you for the wonderful service. You provided 7 rockets containing some of my husband’s ashes which we lit on what would have been his Birthday. They were so beautiful and a truly fitting way to send him off as he requested. The service you provided was professional, personal and efficient so thank you to everyone who helped to make my husband’s final wishes come true.

Paula Greig

Highly recommended this company! The website is excellent and clear. Each package has its own video for you to compare. We chose the low noise option. Their customer care is professional and friendly from the time we placed the order to the delivery of the fireworks. The funeral director measured the ashes for us which may be useful information for anyone who doesn’t fancy doing that themselves. We will never forget our Celebration of Life weekend. Instead of being depressing and sad, it was brilliant and exciting. We will never forget it! Since hearing about it, we’ve been told from friends and family that this is what they want now. Thanks to Dan and all the staff at Heavenly Stars x

Hayley Heath

Just wow! These are so professional, dignified and sentimental, I would definitely recommend this company to take care of your loved ones ashes and for them to return as beautiful tributes and displays. We were so pleased and really feel like we’ve done our Dad proud 💫

Eileen Hale

My late husbands last wish was to have his ashes put into rockets. I wasn’t sure how to do this but after contacting Heavenly Stars Fireworks, I was able to to grant his last wish.
They were so supportive and professional and the process from ordering the rockets to receiving them was so easy. The only thing left to say is Thank You.

Emma Mead

My daughter was the one that found Heavenly Stars when my husband, Bill died in December. Bill was a pyromaniac and adored fireworks, so it seemed such a beautiful send off to send his ashes up to the stars – after all we all came from
stardust. The team set up the event on a beach we have visited many times over the years where Bill enjoyed surfing. The team were fabulous, they did all the liaison with the beach owner and flexed the firing site based on the tide. They were kind, courteous and true professionals. It was a truly spectacular display, we couldn’t have wished for anything better.

Shirley Ross

As a family we would just like to say what an amazing job that you and your team did to enable us to give him such a personal send off.

From my first communication with you right through the whole process Mal was always at the forefront of it.

It is never easy to say goodbye to a loved one and as he was our youngest brother it was even harder for us.

The professionalism and compassion of yourself and your team was much appreciated by all of us.

The display itself was “awesome” as described by a number of the people that attended and far exceeded our expectations. My sister and I were amazed at the number of fireworks that were there.

With very grateful thanks.

  • “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.”
