From the BBC:
A new way to bury people at sea is becoming more popular in the US.

Families use their loved one’s ashes to build an artificial reef which is then dropped into the sea as a new home for marine life.

With so many natural fish habitats having been destroyed the organisers say the burials are helping to preserve aquatic animals.

The BBC’s Heather Alexander went to Ocean City in New Jersey to see how the burials work.
