Here is a different kind of “cemetery.” Well, not so much a cemetery as a memorial. The goal is to directly rehabilitate and rebuild the dying ocean reefs and, in turn, add new habitat to the marine environment. For families and individuals that choose cremation, Eternal Reefs offers a unique memorial choice that replaces cremation urns and ash scatterings with a permanent environmental living legacy.
Families and friends are invited and encouraged to participate in the creation of their loved one’s memorial reef. From placing your hand print in the damp concrete during the casting, making a rubbing of the bronze plaque during the viewing ceremony, or placing a flag on your loved one’s memorial reef during our military honors ceremony, all Eternal Reefs’ activities provide peace of mind for everyone involved.
