It is recognised that burial at sea is a long established tradition in the UK, particularly for those who have been associated with the sea.

There are three burial at sea sites around the English coast:

Before a marine licence for the burial at sea can be issued, certain documents must be presented to the (MMO) Marine Management Organisation for inspection :

Confirmation that the body has not been embalmed
The Death Certificate
A Certificate of Freedom from Fever and Infection
A Notice of intention to remove a body out of England
In some circumstances MMO may need to inspect the body and coffin .

We can work with you and your funeral directors with these aspects - MMO require a fee to be paid before the final license can be issued :. Please note that embalmed bodies may not be buried at sea

Please read: Internal Safety Procedures for burials at Sea

Whilst our local Burial at Sea site is off The Needles we are able to undertake burials at sea off Newhaven (attracts a fuel supplement charge).
