100 Year Anniversary
A fitting tribute for an ocean lover



Burials at Sea

A burial at sea is a perfect tribute for a loved one who was a keen sailor or naval officer, but that doesn’t mean you have to be connected to the sea in this way. A Sea Burial is a fitting sendoff for anyone with a love for the sea, and it’s perhaps more simple than you might think.

There are several regulations which need to be adhered to when arranging a burial at sea, but we at Alderson’s Family Funerals have already experienced arranging a sea burial as there is now a site available in the North Sea, just off North Shields.

Some families will choose to have a ceremony for their loved one on land, before saying their final goodbyes by the quayside.

To learn more about burials at sea and how you can go about organising one for your loved one, contact the caring and compassionate professionals here at Alderson’s Family Funerals. We operate throughout Durham and the surrounding areas, such as Belmont, Newton Hall and Coxhoe.

It’s not always easy to know what flowers would best suit the funeral you are arranging, but it’s not uncommon to see any of the following: sprays, wreaths, sheaves and baskets, posies, hearts and cushions, and crosses and letters. If you would like to see our flower brochure or would like some expert advice from our team, please contact us.
Yes you can, but in order to do this, we will need the deeds or definite confirmation as to the location. Most councils require the deeds or an indemnity signed. There are often strict rules regarding the erection of memorials in churchyards and cemeteries and we can advise you of these at the time.
