The Scattering of Ashes

Specialising in the burial and scattering of cremated ashes at sea, we offer a highly unique and personal service tailored to your requirements and we are uniquely positioned to be able to provide the complete ashes scattering or burial package, from Burnham-on-Crouch or Wallasea Island near Southend on Sea.

We understand the needs of our clients from whatever walk of life, custom or religion. We understand that some scatterings of cremated remains need to be carried out in a river, others must be in the open sea and we can facilitate this for you. We appreciate that some clients require an almost instant committal, we will do our best, subject to prevailing conditions and existing commitments, to be available for you. We will do our utmost to ensure that the occasion runs as smoothly as possible, with respect and dignity. We will always carry out the committal at a position that is unique to you in an area as far away as possible from other vessels or activity in an area free of pollution.

Personal Service

Many people, either for reasons of their faith or from past association with the sea, wish to have their ashes scattered at sea. the scattering of cremated remains at sea has been an attractive alternative to other forms of internment for many generations and for many reasons. We offer scatterings from the Thames and Crouch aboard our own boat. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements.

Family Service

These trips are tailor made to suit the requirements of our clients. Once again the most popular option is to sail from our home port in Essex where we can cater for up to 12 guests. Clients can choose how they would like to commemorate their loved one, whether it be by means of a service conducted by their own religious official or purely by themselves. These trips last up to two hours and the exact time and position of the committal for memorial reasons are provided to allow for return visits to exact place. Guests are free to bring refreshments of their choice aboard our vessel.

Environmental Policy

It is our policy to protect the environment as much as possible and to adhere to the various regulations in force such as MARPOL regarding marine pollution. Accordingly all cremated remains for sea burial must be passed to us in either a biodegradable urn, biodegradable box or a water soluble (PVA) plastic bag in which the ashes are to be committed. Obviously ashes for the Family Service may arrive in any suitable container which can be taken home afterwards. It is important to remember that only one floral tribute can be laid at sea and these must not contain any wires or plastics whatsoever. We appreciate your help in protecting the environment.
