In the late 1990s in Sweden a growing number of people chose to scatter the ashes of their cremated relatives in places other than public or private burial grounds. The option of scattering was, itself, made possible in 1957, and is strictly regulated. It is possible to see the private taking care of the ashes as a post-modern way of relating to rites of death. The purposes of these acts are to handle and structure a process, an event, an important value, or to create a meaning-shaping situation, which involves a considering of the will and intention of the deceased.
