Saying Goodbye in a Memorable Way
When the relatives of a deceased soldier attend a memorial service, we understand they want a unique burial. Even when there are no passengers aboard, we follow the View-from-the-Pier process. It allows anybody to join the memorial service without boarding the boat. The guests observe the proceedings from the dock at a distance of a few yards. This approach is the most cost-effective and favored choice among many individuals.
There are two distinct types of unattended memorial ceremonies offered. During these burials, the deceased's family members do not accompany us on our boat while we spread the ash at sea. We exert much effort to guarantee that the departed are honored. Our team is here to help you arrange every detail. In addition, they will recommend the best hours to set sail during excellent sea conditions.
Affordable Funerals At Sea
The most popular activity begins with you and your friends aboard the 'Orion' to scatter the deceased's cremated remains at sea. We provide everything required for an exquisitely beautiful funeral at sea ceremony. We arrange the ceremony per your requests, and you can choose to bring a minister, specific chants, or music to "personalize" the occasion more. You could also choose to have beverages and particular foods on deck for the duration of the event. Our service lasts around two hours from when we meet until we return to the port.
As part of the burial ceremony, the ashes will be placed in a flower-covered basket, and the ship's bell will be rung to commemorate "The Last Watch." We continue to the spot of the loved one's interment with the support of family members onboard. After the initial service, a designated family member gets a Memorial Certificate with the location's Latitude and Longitude coordinates. Our records allow us to offer this specialist service anytime you need to make arrangements.
