Particularly in East Asian or Mahayana Buddhism , a physical gravesite is considered important for the conduct of memorial and ancestor rites. The Buddhist Churches of America , the North American branch of Japanese Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, has created a service for Buddhist burials at sea, primarily for military service members.
In Thailand ashes are generally placed in a wreath with lit candles and floated off to sea from a vessel followed by a procession of mourning wreaths, with lit candles also. Officially, the Roman Catholic Church prefers normal casket burials over cremations, but does allow for cremation subject to the condition that the ashes are entombed or buried. Catholics believe it is not proper to scatter or pour the cremated remains over the sea, water, or on the land.
According to the Roman Catholic Church this action does not give due respect to the remains of the deceased, nor does it allow for the closure and healing of family and friends. Likewise they see that the custom of housing the remains with family or friends and not placing the deceased in the ground does not offer loved ones a specific and sacred place to visit the individual. Visiting the deceased in a holy place provides believers with a space to offer prayers, commune with those who have gone before them in faith, and reminds them to await the resurrection of their own bodies.
Burial at sea in a casket or in an urn is approved for cases where the deceased expired in the sea. The Anglican Communion has detailed procedures for burial at sea. The ship has to be stopped, and the body has to be sewn in canvas, suitably weighted. Anglican and other chaplains of the Royal Navy bury cremated remains of ex-Naval personnel at sea. Scattering of cremated remains is discouraged, not least for practical reasons. At the Burial of the Dead at Sea. The same Office may be used; but instead of the Sentence of Committal, the Minister shall say:.
Unto Almighty God we commend the soul of our brother departed, and we commit his body to the deep; in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection unto eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ; at whose coming in glorious majesty to judge the world, the sea shall give up her dead; and the corruptible bodies of those who sleep in him shall be changed, and made like unto his glorious body; according to the mighty working whereby he is able to subdue all things unto himself.
Many Lutheran naval veterans and seamen prefer to be buried at sea. In those cases either the casket or urn is set to sea, or ashes scattered. The procedure is similar as that with the Anglican church. Some parishes have specific consecrated sea areas where ashes can be sprinkled. The sacred texts of Islam prefer burial on land, "so deep that its smell does not come out and the beasts of prey do not dig it out". However, if a person dies at sea and it is not possible to bring the body back to land before decay, or if burial at land becomes impossible, burial at sea is allowed.
A weight is tied to the feet of the body, and the body is lowered into the water. This would preferably occur in an area where the remains are not immediately eaten by scavengers. It is best to bury him the deceased in the cemetery If someone dies on a ship and it is impossible to bury him on land, the body is placed O: tightly lashed between two planks O: to obviate bloating and thrown into the sea O: so that it reaches shore, even if the inhabitants are non-Muslims, since a Muslim might find the body and bury it facing the direction of prayer qibla.
According to Jewish law , a dead person must be quickly buried and burial requires covering in earth. The legal text Shulchan Aruch brings a case example explaining that even if a person is known to have drowned in a closed body of water such as a small pond where there can be certainty that the victim had not somehow survived, the family does not begin ritual mourning and remains in extended state of most intense mourning aninut until either the body is found or after an exhaustive search despairs of recovering and burying the body.
B'resheit Genesis states "With the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, until you return to the ground, from dust you were taken and you are dust, and to dust you will return. If for some reason the body of someone deceased aboard a ship causes an immediate life threat to those aboard the vessel the commandment to protect innocent life or pikuach nefesh overrides nearly all commandments including the command to bury the dead, as any appropriate actions to ensure safety of surviving crew are required to be taken which may include jettisoning a body at sea without burial.
However, attempts would later be made to recover and bury when possible without life hazard. An example of the desire to bury a body in the ground even after it has been long dead at sea, is that of the Israeli submarine Dakar which was lost with no survivors in but was only discovered in lying broken at a depth of 3, meters.
Search and recovery of any potentially existing remains at this very difficult to access depth has not shown results despite requests from family and the Chief Rabbi of the IDF. Burial at sea within Australian territorial waters , exclusive economic zone and continental shelf is covered by the Environmental Protection Sea Dumping Act administered by the federal Department of the Environment. A permit is required for burial of bodies at sea. Permits are usually only granted in cases of a strong connection to the sea, such as long-serving navy personnel.
The body must not be embalmed or placed in a casket, it may only be sewn into a weighted shroud. Australian Defence Force vessels engaged in armed conflicts or emergency situations are exempt from these requirements. Burial at sea was a method hypothetically suggested by the then Medical Officer of Health for Liverpool , Dr Duncan Dolton, in which unburied bodies could be buried at sea during any extended strike by gravediggers union the GMWU during the —79 Winter of Discontent.
The suggestion caused great alarm amongst the public and helped prompt a resolution to the strike. In England , cremated remains may be scattered freely at sea but a burial must be made in a coffin meeting regulatory requirements and in one of three locations: off The Needles , Isle of Wight ; between Hastings and Newhaven ; and off Tynemouth , North Tyneside.
Permission may be sought for another burial site. Charity organisation the Maritime Volunteer Service also helps carry out burials at sea. In Scotland , there are two designated sites for burial at sea. These are miles due west of Oban and 15 miles west of John O'Groats. A funeral director is not required for the burial of cremated remains at sea. However, full body burials require specific preparation to ensure the body or coffin sinks quickly, and in many states a licensed funeral director is required.
California prohibits whole body burial within its state-asserted three-mile limit. The United States is similar to many countries which permit the spreading of cremation ashes within their Exclusive Economic zone: when spreading ashes from a ship which is registered in a different country, the regulations and reporting procedures for the ship's flag state need to be complied with once the vessel is in international waters, that is, outside 12 nautical miles. Ships follow the London convention principles, as opposed to MARPOL regulations, as the ash is intentionally taken on board for discharge at sea, as opposed to ash generated on passage from the ship's incinerators.
The United States Navy has performed many burials at sea in its history, with wartime burials as recently as World War II , and peacetime burials still common. Enemy deaths received the same ceremony as Americans or allies. If the deceased died on land or has been returned to shore after death, the remains may be brought aboard either in a coffin or in an urn after cremation. The ceremony is performed while the ship is deployed, and consequently civilians are not allowed to be present.
In the US, people eligible for a free Navy burial at sea are:. In preparation, the officer of the deck calls All hands bury the dead , and the ship is stopped if possible. Decorator showplace.
