Scatter Ashes in Queensland with an Ocean Funeral

Are you living in the Queensland area and faced with the difficult decision of planning a funeral? So many delicate decisions must be taken into consideration when planning the celebration of a loved one’s life, and at Newhaven Funerals we understand that you deserve options. That’s why we offer ocean funerals and are the only funeral home in Queensland to assist you to scatter ashes of loved ones at sea.

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.

Are you traditional and prefer standard settings when it comes to funerals, or are you seeking a unique experience to honour and celebrate the life of a loved one?

What is a Scattering of Ashes?

A scattering of ashes or sea scattering, is an option for loved ones of the deceased to scatter ashes into the sea off one of our vessels at a predetermined location. After a thoughtful and personal ceremony, you have the unique and tender opportunity to go about the scattering of ashes peacefully to rest in the vast sea.

There is the option for light refreshments to be made available for guests to your sea scattering ceremony, we work to find what is best for your situation and the honour of your loved one.

It is a freeing and emotional experience that is performed with the utmost care by our staff who work to support you through every step of the decision making process.

Is a Sea Scattering the Right Fit?

When planning Queensland funerals, we have certified funeral directors who are on call 24 hours a day to meet your needs. They will give you your options and help you navigate to determine if an ocean ceremony is the right fit for you and your loved ones to celebrate the life that has been lost. If you enjoy nature, peaceful settings and the calming sound of the sea, it may be a strong option to consider.

Imagine a sea scattering as a freeing and beautiful experience when your loved one will remain in the ecosystem and be returned to nature. Water is the basis of life, and the setting breathes a necessary life into one of the most difficult days for many families; it really is a beautiful and strong option. We understand that it is not for everyone, so if you are unsure and would like more information on our services to scatter ashes, dont hesitate to contact one of our crematoriums in your area, or phone us on 1800 644 524.
