Portsmouth is the home of the Royal Navy as well as being a very busy port for commercial shipping and leisure sailing.
As the founding unit of a national maritime uniformed charity, the Maritime Volunteer Service often provides a committal of ashes service to the relatives of former naval personnel and enthusiasts of the sea.
Committing the ashes of a loved one to the sea is a fitting tribute to those who have sadly passed away and who during their life enjoyed or devoted some of their time to ‘life on the water’.
Furthermore, committing the ashes to the sea can provide the comfort of carrying out a loved one’s final wish.
We understand that no two committals are the same and we have experience of many different beliefs, faiths and requests.
We always take time to establish the arrangements and requirements for a committal.
