Returning a loved one’s ashes to the sea or the River Tyne

There’s a comforting ‘completeness’ in returning a loved one’s ashes to the sea, to where all life began. Scattering ashes at sea is a service Turnbull & Son Funeral Directors have the privilege to offer.

 

Onboard Humberston Charters – taking in the most beautiful spots within the Tyne Harbour and the North Easts coastline have to offer, you can say a unique farewell, joining their cremated remains with the serenity of the sea and river with our scattering ash at sea ceremony.

 

In the respectful company of E Turnbull & Son Funeral Directors and Humberston Charters – and sharing a final journey made by mariners across the centuries, you have ample space and time to relax, reflect and toast a life, well lived.

 

Your skipper and crew know the waters well. The charter accommodates up to a maximum of 12 guests and you can choose catering to suit the send-off.

High Season Charter

 

During the high season, from 1st May to 30th September, the cost of a half days charter to include scattering your loved ones ashes is from £250.00. The charter is for 6 passengers, however extra guests can be added for an additional cost, up to a maximum of 12 people – POA.

Departing from Royal Quays, after getting settled aboard and a quick safety briefing, the charter will head off down the River Tyne and explore.

You will head out of the Tyne towards Tynemouth. From there and depending on conditions, we will return and explore the River Tyne, arriving at the Millennium bridge, we will ask it to tilt, the charter will pass under the bridge and proceed to ‘scattering’ point.
