If your family member has passed away, you may want to give them a sea burial. These proceedings let you honor your loved one uniquely. If this is a ceremony that you are considering, you can carry it out the right way by getting help from a charter.
Obtaining Permits and Licenses
It is best to let an experienced charter handle the burial at sea because under certain conditions, there are permits and licenses that need to be obtained. For many reasons, simplest approach is the spreading of ashes following a cremation. On the other hand, if a full-body burial is being considered, a licensed funeral director needs to oversee the care of the body until the event takes place.
The coffin also needs to be modified by a licensed funeral director. The casket must undergo drilling and weighting so that it doesn’t just stay on the water’s surface during the ceremony. You also have the option of using a burial shroud, which is a more environmentally-friendly way of having a burial at sea.
Saying goodbye to a loved one can be hard, and giving them the proper burial at sea entails many preparations. A trusted charter is standing by to oversee that these events are carried out properly and in a respectable way.
All the legal requirements aside, burials at sea are a beautiful way to bring everyone closer together to remember and celebrate a loved one’s life.
