Types of Funerals: Burial at Sea

In special types of funeral service following cremation, the urn is taken beyond the three-mile zone into open waters of the sea and the captain scatters the deceased's remains over the water. The deceased's loved ones will receive a commemorative certificate including the exact location of the burial and an excerpt from the ship's log. On request, the family of the deceased may also be present during the burial at sea.

Note: A burial at sea is only possible if the deceased gave written consent to such a burial while he or she was still alive. If the deceased has not left a will indicating the type of funeral desired, a burial at sea can also be arranged by the next of kin.
