Series 2, Episode 2 - Ashes To Ashes

When Trigger's grandmother dies, the Trotters attend the funeral and Del agrees to sell off some of her possessions. These include a couple of precious urns, one of which, on inspection, appears to contain the ashes of Trig's grandfather. They need to dispose of them in a fitting way.

Full synopsis

When Trigger's Grandmother passes away, the Trotters gather round to offer their condolences. Ever the considerate friend, Del offers to take some of her valuables off Trig's hands - he wouldn't want just anyone to come along and rip him off, after all.

Del spots two urns that might be worth a bob or two, but Rodney and Grandad agree that they must contain the ashes of Trig's Grandfather. As they remember he was an avid bowler, they decide to scatter his ashes on the local bowling green - but to no avail.

A second plan to throw his ashes into the Thames is scuppered, and a passing road sweeping lorry eventually sucks them up - a poetic ending when they remember that Trig's Grandad was a road sweeper too.
