A Time to Grieve

Grieving is perfectly natural when someone you love dies. Your own personality and background will affect the way you grieve. Some people weep, others become quiet and some will need to talk to someone. Whatever your feelings now, take heart that the experience of those who have lost loved ones will help you through this time.

While there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can ease your sadness and help you come to terms with your loss, find new meaning, and move on with your life. You may find some of the support networks listed below. While we support the service providers we do not affiliate ourselves with any particular group. This list is provided for assistance only.

The One  & All

A farewell at sea is a unique and private tribute, and the perfect way for your loved one to have their ashes set at sea.

You can celebrate their life by sharing this special moment with family and friends on the deck of South Australia’s traditional tall ship, the ‘One & All’.

A charter of the ship will depart from Port Adelaide and travel three nautical miles from the coast for you to scatter their ashes at sea.


Scattering Ashes at  Sea

Has one of your family or relatives expressed a wish for their ashes to be scattered at sea?

Tony Monte Funeral Services in conjunction with the Sea Rescue Adelaide is able to provide this service for you and your loved one.

The South Australia Sea Rescue Squadron Inc.  will provide a vessel and crew to take immediate family to a nearby location where we stop so that you can pay your last respects and to scatter the ashes. Following the service, a certificate is provided on which are recorded the personal details of the deceased and the GPS position of the Scattering.

The Squadron requests a donation for providing the service and suggest that an amount of $250.00* as appropriate. This donation is tax deductible. (* may be subject to change)
