  2. All processes are carried out at Barleylands Glassworks. The ashes are never transferred to any other workshop or organisation.
  3. They are kept in a sealed bag in a container.
  4. They are marked clearly with the order details including the order number, name of deceased and customer's name.
  5. When pieces are produced, they are made separately from other orders by James Watts, Bill Rhodes and their team.
