Burial at Sea - Honoring Their Life with a Memorial Service at Sea
“I must go down to the sea again,
to the lonely sea and the sky;
and all I ask is a tall ship
and a star to steer her by.”
Your Memorial Service could be a simple onboard service where the ashes are scattered, or a more involved event such as an eternal reef placement. The important thing is to honor and remember your loved one in a meaningful and significant way. Request information or schedule a date

It’s important to take the time to acknowledge the uniqueness of the deceased: the individuality of their personality, and their life's path. Not just for them, but for you; it affirms your relationship, and leads to healing after loss. Honoring their life is truly an act of love – for the both of you.

We realize that it can be difficult to entrust your loved one's memorial service to someone you have never met. We hope that our photos and videos will help make your choice a bit easier. Since today's families are often separated across the country and even the world, Ashes on the Sea strives to use the latest technology to help bring everyone together! - Caviat: We are NOT professional photographers, so the finished product you receive will not necessarily be of the photography industry standard. If professional quality is what you require, we also have referrals for you :)
