Ocean Funerals

Newhaven Funerals on the beautiful Gold Coast now has the ability to increase the level of service and care provided. Company director and Captain Phil Connolly insists the response has been overwhelming. “We have the ability to expose people to an experience that has previously not existed. This experience allows people to detach themselves from the day to day hustle and bustle and contemplate the simplicity of life”.

During the memorial service, family members are encouraged to scatter a portion of the ashes into the sea. Individual flower petals mix with the ashes and are disbursed with the ocean currents. A GPS position can be advised if requested.
