BURIAL AT SEA

 

The tradition of burial at sea is an ancient one. As far as anyone knows this has been a practice as long as people have gone to sea.

 

In earlier times, the body was sewn into a weighted shroud, usually sailcloth. The body was then sent over the side, usually with an appropriate religious ceremony.

 

Many burials at sea took place as recently as World War II when naval forces operated at sea for weeks, and months at a time.

 

Since World War II many service members, veterans, and family members have chosen to be buried at sea.

 

Reserve the AQUA THERAPY NW for this service.
