Committal Services

May I take this opportunity to thank you and all your staff for the professional and compassionate service you all provided to our family on Sunday for Dad's committal.  

You have provided a faultless service.  All the family commented on the day and felt that it was conducted with dignity.

We cannot thank you or recommend you enough.

Commit your loved ones to the sea with dignity.

Many people wish to have their ashes scattered at sea when they pass away. We offer tasteful maritime committal services with a uniformed crew free of charge for up to twenty people.

If you choose a committal service with MVS Poole, we will provide licenced boats and qualified crew to transport your group to the agreed scattering area, either inside or outside the harbour.

The package can also includes a photographic boat, to record the ceremony from another perspective.

After the end of the service, we will send a Certificate of Committal detailing the position where the ashes were scattered and a chartlet visually marking the position.

We can also organise future anniversary or memorial trips to the same position after the event.

  • Our boats are well equipped and licenced with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.
  • Our vessels are commanded by a fully trained skipper and crew.
  • We do not charge - however a donation for our services is welcome
  • Capacity for 10 passengers on a single vessel
  • Ceremony arranged to meet your needs

Please get in touch for more information, or if you would like to organise a service.
