New England Burials at Sea offers unattended and attended Ash Scatterings at Sea.
Each event is customized to the families needs, religion and requests whenever possible.
Event includes an official ship’s parchment sea burial certificate marking the coordinates of the decedent’s final resting place, eight bell end of watch blessing and a ten gauge cannon salute as the ship circles the flower field and there are many more options to choose from.
We provide a caring, respectful and dignified delivery of the ashes of loved ones to the sea. We provide individualized and personal services.
Scattering cremated remains at sea is a common and eco-friendly choice.
The services of a funeral director are not required for ash scatterings; families and individuals can plan these memorial events on their own or with the assistance of a maritime funeral provider.
The role of the maritime funeral provider is multifaceted; almost like an event planner the maritime funeral provider can organize the vessel, catering and music, but the primary responsibility is to charter a safe and appropriate vessel and to council the family.
Annual visit trips can be arranged to cruise by the site that cremated remains were distributed to, at the same GPS coordinates, for a special rate.
All services include a certificate marking the latitude and longitude of your loved ones’ ashes.
Unattended Ash Scatterings start at $495.
Attended Ash Scatterings for 6 to 400 people start at $1450.00 and can vary by port

Bio Degradable Sea Urns
