Dark Souls 3 Umbral Ash Location Guide

Morticians Ashes
This is likely the first set of Ashes you will find in the game. Go to the Dilapidated Bridge Bonfire to get close. Follow the road until you get to the area with all the spears and tombstones. Run towards the building past the white tree but instead of going inside, go left and up the path. You can find the ashes against a tree up there. Bring them back to the Item lady in the Firelink Shrine for new items.
Dreamchasers Ashes
Go to the Old Wolf of Farron Bonfire to get close to these Ashes. Head outside and go to the left and take the stairs you find. At the top if you look to the left you can see a wall that kind of looks like it would be a door way. Hit the wall and it will open and you can get the Ashes.
Grave Warden
Go to the Catacombs Of Carthus Bonfire to get close to the Ashes. You are going to be doing some fighting to get there so be ready. Go straight and then left at the end of the hall, watch out for the rolling ball of death. Go down into the rat area and take out any enemies that come at you. Go up the stairs in the area and clear out the ninja skeletons lurking around. If you are having trouble you should lure them back to the rolling ball of death and use that to help you. At the back-end of the area at the top of the stairs you can find the Ashes.
Paladin Ashes
I actually missed this one somehow as I was running through here. Warp to the Cathedral of the Deep Bonfire. Instead of going up the stairs, take a left and follow that path to the Ashes. There is a NPC here so be ready for a fight.
Greirats Ashes
Warp to the Distant Manor Bonfire in the Boreal Valley area. Go up the stairs and out into the water area. On the right side you will see a wall, follow it until there is an entrance you go in. There are a few of those weird Spiderlady enemies inside here so be sure to kill them. You should see a set of stairs in the area. In the door across from the stairs you will find these Umbral Ashes.
Excrement-covered Ashes
Warp to the Distant Manor Bonfire in the Boreal Valley area. Go up the stairs and out into the water area. On the right side you will see a wall, follow it until there is an entrance you go in. There are a few of those weird Spiderlady enemies inside here so be sure to kill them. There is a group of three protecting an item on the floor in here, that is where the Umbral Ashes are. You can take them one by one if you hit them while they are down.
Xanthous Ashes
Warp to the Profaned Capital Bonfire to get close to these Ashes. You are going to need to head back across the bridge like you are going back to the dungeon. The Coal is in the room with all the enemies with Poker Sticks. They are annoying to fight but not difficult. When they use their magic and they are leaning towards the floor they are defenseless. Run up and kill them while they do that. You just need to wait for your HP to refill back to its maximum. The Ashes are in another room connected to this one with those nasty white deformed creatures inside. You are going to have to kill them to get the Ashes.
Prisoner Chiefs Ashes
Go to the Irithyll Dungeon Bonfire for these Ashes, you will need toe Jailer;s Keyring as well. Go down the steps and then go all the way to the right, killing anyone in your way. At the end, drop down to the left and you will find a cell still locked that you can open with the Jailer’s Keyring. In there you will find the Prisoner Chief’s Ashes.
