Ash Scatterings Within Sight of Lighthouses

burials-lighthouseScattering the ashes of loved one within sight of lighthouses or other distinct coastal landmarks is a great way to give families and friends a location to visit with their loved ones from shore.

Lighthouse locations offer scenic views and in most cases make fantastic picnic areas. It is also an affordable cost cruise since it typically takes no more than 15 minutes to travel out to a suitable spot within sight of the land mark of choice. New England Burials at Sea typically supplies ash scattering certificates stating the latitude, longitude and date of the ceremony and will also include the distance and direction. For example: “5 miles North Northeast of Scituate Lighthouse in Scituate, Massachusetts.”

The distance and direction is also a nice touch to add to published obituaries or notices sent to friends and relatives who could not attend services, but would like to pay their respects at a later time.

    Interested in scattering the ashes of my mom off the coast of Maine maybe Ogunquit or Kennebunkport lighthouse would be awesome. She died several years ago and was cremated. I have her remains here at my home in Reisterstown, MD. I’ve been searching for an option to fulfill my promise to scatter her ashes in New England. I don’t need to be present, so the certificate sounds like the perfect option. Please let me know the cost and logistics and other specifics. Thanks
