Many people, either for reasons of their faith or from past association with the sea, wish to have their ashes scattered at sea. We offer this service throughout the year from Brighton Marina.
The Family Ash Scattering Services
We will take you, your friends and family (no more than 12) out from the Marina . We go to sea about a mile or so offshore and stop the boat and engines.

When choosing a ash scattering services it is important to think about scattering ashes over a body of water a water-soluble urn can enhance the experience. These urns are specifically designed to gradually disperse the ashes back to the sea. Ashes can be cast directly into the water, but will often blow back at the boat and cling to the sides of the boat. This can be both frustrating and unsightly. A water-soluble urn will usually float for several minutes then slowly sink where it will degrade or melt back to the sea, scattering the cremation ashes.
