Scattering ashes in a sea burial is what is now known as a green burial. It is not only environmental concerns that drive these funerals at sea. It is the simplicity of water and sky. The dirge of the pipe organ, the muffled tones and stifled cries in a traditional ceremony often adds to the weight on the family of the deceased.
There is harmony in the return of a body to the dust it once was and its return to the ocean of its origin under the brilliant blue of the sky.
A burial at sea service will be presided over by one of our captains and his crew. We will arrange a post-ceremony luncheon for your family and will make possible any special wishes that you have for that day.
We think of ourselves as a company that will be with you in good times and in bad. If a cremation funeral at sea suits your wishes, we will be there to support you.
“Perhaps passing through the gates of death is like passing quietly through the gate in a pasture fence. On the other side, you keep walking, without the need to look back. No shock, no drama, just the lifting of a plank or two in a simple wooden gate in a clearing. Neither pain, nor floods of light, nor great voices, but just the silent crossing of a meadow.”
~ Mark Helprin, “A Soldier of the Great War”
