Guernsey Funerals at Sea
"The sea is the largest cemetery and it slumbers without a monument"
George Bruce - 1884
Burials at sea are not just for people who have served in the Navy but in fact, this option in and around Guernsey and the Channel Island waters is cheaper and easier than people think. Unlike the UK the Access Challenger can obtain a unique license to perform the burial at any specific coordinates.
Almost 20 people a year are laid to rest in the sea every year, people who have either had a long-standing connection to the ocean or want an eco-friendly alternative to traditional methods.
Access Challenger cannot organise specific details for a Funeral at Sea but we can provide the tender facilitate some of the necessary licenses. For more information on Burial at Sea in Guernsey contact, Beckford's Funeral Services LTD or Martels.
