Burial At Sea


The loss of a loved one is never easy. The scattering of ashes into the open ocean is a timeless tradition that spans across many cultures around the world. Many people, from former residents to returning visitors, have decided to make Murrells Inlet their final resting place.


Families and loved ones are increasingly choosing to scatter ashes at sea. This unique memorial service is a perfect way to honor those who had a love of the ocean, those who had a nautical background, and those who wish to be put to rest in the waters of “paradise”.


Burials at sea are a beautiful, moving, and touching ceremony. We will help personalize your service to ensure a memorable event. Each service is private, dignified, and respectful, lasting 1 ½ hours. We strive to meet you and your loved one’s desires and wishes.

We encourage families who choose the scattering option to use a biodegradable scattering urn; what may seem like an easy procedure can be a bit difficult given wind and water conditions.
