Burials at sea

Many West Sussex residents have a profound connection to the sea and, as such, wish to be buried at sea.  These types of funerals require more planning and formalities than funerals on land but we can undertake all those arrangements for you.

For those who wish to be buried at sea, we can now offer a full funeral service, taking care of all the paperwork, licences, boat hire, etc and burial off Newhaven, one of only two locations where burials at sea can take place.

Because of the unpredictability of the weather, we always arrange an alternative date for the burial at sea in case the funeral has to be cancelled.  On the day, up to 6 members of the family can accompany the coffin and be present for the burial.

If you have any questions about burials at sea or any part of our funeral service in this regard, please feel free to contact us and we will be glad to answer your queries.
