Burial at Sea

As a part of our whole body donation program, we provide a no-cost cremation. But, what happens to the cremated remains is up to you. We offer several options:

  • Spread Ashes at Sea (a.k.a. Burial at Sea)
  • Dignified Urn (never a cardboard or plastic box)
  • Or a "No Return" Option

If you choose to have the cremains spread at sea, there are some things you should know:

  • Ashes are spread at an appropriate distance off the coast of California.
  • Families or next of kin receive a Spread at Sea Certificate complete with witness details, dates and coordinates of spreading location including longitude and latitude.
  • Families cannot attend the spreading, but is witnessed by Research For Life staff.
  • We spread the ashes annually.
