Understanding Unattended Services

Burials in the Sea offers Unattended Memorial Services, providing a respectful and dignified option for those who wish to have their loved ones’ ashes scattered at sea without the presence of family or friends. 

This service is designed for individuals and families who, for various reasons, cannot attend the ceremony but still wish to honor their loved one’s final wishes with the serene backdrop of the Pacific Ocean.

Our Unattended Memorial Services are conducted with the same level of care and respect as our attended services. We ensure that your loved one’s farewell is handled with dignity, in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of Southern California’s seascape.

Key Aspects of Our Service

  • Dignified Handling: Each unattended service is conducted with utmost respect, following the wishes of the departed and their families.
  • Ceremonial Documentation: We provide families with a certificate detailing the date, time, and coordinates of the ash scattering, offering a sense of closure and a place to visit in memory.
  • Environmental Consideration: All services are performed in accordance with environmental regulations, ensuring a respectful return to nature.
Serene Farewell At Sea

What Sets Beyond The Sea Services Apart

Choosing an unattended service does not mean compromising on the quality or the sincerity of the farewell. Burials in the Sea is committed to ensuring that every aspect of the ceremony is handled with professionalism and sensitivity.

Our Commitment Includes

  • Personalized Coordination: Prior to the service, our team works with you to understand any specific wishes or considerations for the ceremony.
  • Respect for Wishes: We ensure that the scattering is done according to your loved one’s wishes, whether that involves a specific location off the coast or the use of a biodegradable urn.
  • Compassionate Support: Our experienced team is here to provide support and answer any questions, making the process as seamless and comforting as possible.

The Ceremony Process Via Beyond The Sea

Though not attended by family or friends, the unattended memorial service is conducted with solemnity and grace, honoring the memory of the departed in the vast, embracing calm of the ocean.

Ceremony Details

  • Vessel Departure: Our vessel, carrying the ashes and manned by our experienced crew, departs from the harbor and proceeds to the scattering location.
  • Ash Scattering: The ceremony is conducted with reverence, as the ashes are gently scattered into the sea, returning to nature in a peaceful manner.
  • Ceremonial Record: A certificate documenting the ceremony’s details is sent to the family, serving as a keepsake and a testament to the dignified farewell.
