Burial at Sea

Planning a Burial at Sea

Burial at sea is not only an option for former sailors or Naval personnel, it is available to everybody.

The British tradition of burial at sea is a unique and hugely moving experience and straightforward for your A.W. Lymn funeral director to arrange.

Burial at Sea is increasing in popularity and with strict regulations surrounding how it is undertaken, this is an environmentally-friendly funeral option.

If your loved one spent their life on the water, or enjoyed the peaceful serenity of the waves, we can help to make the sea their final resting place.

Where can burial at sea happen?

There are two main sites where Burial at Sea is allowed to take place in England:

  • Off the Needles, Isle of the Wight
  • Between Hastings and Newhaven, on the South Coast

There is also an emergency site off the Northumberland coast, near Tynemouth, but permission to use this is only granted in exceptional circumstances and requires a special license from the Marine Management Organisation.

We can advise and organise traditional Burial at sea – full coffin interment and a day for your nearest and dearest to remember.
