Life Beyond is a group of caring people providing burial at sea. Our service consists of a dignified ceremony and the reverent scattering of cremains with flowers. Captain Tom Hallock, a licensed captain, offers you this alternative to the higher cost of land burial and makes you and your family at one with the ancient traditions of the sea. Whatever your religious beliefs, you are welcome on the vessel. Should you wish, Captain Hallock can perform the service for you. When circumstance dictates an immediate burial, we can accommodate you.
