Both cremated and non-cremated remains can be buried at sea by the Navy. Families are not permitted to attend the service which is performed at a date and time chosen by the Navy. After completing all necessary forms, the remains must be delivered to one of several ports where the service is available. When a full body is to be buried at sea, the casket must be prepared according to Navy guidelines and transported by a funeral director at the family's expense.
