Custom Burial Services
We understand that everyone has different requirements. It's why we provide various burials at sea options for military veterans, such as:
Multiple Scattering of Ashes
We coordinate with the Crematorium/Mortuary to have multiple sets of ashes picked up and given to us in this service. We conduct the ritual in the same manner as we would if family members were on board. Additionally, we have different rituals for everyone at various sites. As each set of ashes is carefully dropped into the ocean, prayers will be spoken, and beautiful petals will be scattered over the waves.
Single Scattering of Ashes
During this funeral, family members will meet us in person or mail us a single set of cremains. When a private ceremony is held at sea, we also can send the family members photographs of the event if required.
Attended Military Burials at Sea
When the departed veteran's family members attend memorial services, they are somewhat more expensive than others we provide. Although there are no guests aboard the boat, the View-from-the-Pier Memorial Service is also an attended service. It allows people to participate in the memorial service without being on the boat. The family and others stand on the pier and observe the event from a few yards away. This option proves to be the best and most inexpensive choice for many people
You can adorn the basket containing the ashes and participate in the basket's lowering ritual. This is followed by prayers, storytelling, and a memorial address. In summary, we do all possible to make the event memorable. As a non-profit organization, our military burial services are extremely reasonably priced.
Unattended Memorial Services
We provide two distinct types of unattended memorial ceremonies. The family members do not accompany us on the yacht when we spread the ashes at sea during these funerals. We are careful to ensure that the departed is honored in every manner. The burial place will be chosen based on factors including:
- Calm waters
- Little boating traffic
Hymns will be recited during the ceremony, rose petals and flowers will follow the ashes, and we provide free professional photographic services. Our modest memorial service is modeled after funerals for immediate family members and is tailored to your unique preferences. We provide all services and respect all religions. In addition, we can customize the service as you see fit, within the bounds of the law. Our team is here to help you plan everything down to the last detail. They will also recommend the best times to head out to sea for the most conducive sea conditions.
