Hand stitched by New England Sail Makers, the soft-sided Ocean Burial Shroud is designed as an ocean friendly burial alternative that is more cost effective than the price of a full wood or metal casket. These sea burial shrouds are suitable for pre voyage funeral home viewings and comes in a variety of earth tone colors with custom monogramming available. The shroud is made from natural materials and is designed to degrade in a few short months offering a true “eco-friendly” sea burial. The most popular style is the untreated 10 oz cotton duck fiber natural untreated and unbleached version with sisal rope closure lacing, built in privacy panel and nickel plated chrome locking hardware -- the finest system available for ocean friendly biodegradable sea burials. Includes a Memory Pocket located over the left chest that holds photos, letters or mementos.

This patent pending design has an independent chambered ballast weight system separate from the body compartment to ensure the shroud descends feet first to the ocean floor.

Each burial shroud is made to order. Please allow 5-7 days for production.

EPA requires 150lbs of weight be added to the burial shrouds to ensure quick sinking. Cannon Balls are recommended. With shipping, Cannon Balls are available for $500. Other iron heavy weights are also suitable.
