Families of the deceased could soon opt to scatter the ashes of their loved ones at sea without having to travel by boat.
A new burial facility will be built along the shoreline in Tanah Merah, with a boardwalk that extends into the sea to allow the scattering of ashes.
The sea burial facility is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of next year, Lianhe Zaobao reported yesterday. It will have four pavilions, each of which can accommodate seven people, and a shelter that can accommodate 28 people, among other features.
The facility will be open to everybody, regardless of race and religion.
