The Omega Society offers additional options for those who choose to personalize their services in a special way or select from a variety of special upgrades.

For those wanting to witness the scattering of remains at sea, Omega offers a personalized burial at sea ceremony aboard a private yacht, White Light. This meaningful and beautiful ceremony at sea provides families with an opportunity to privately memorialize the life of their loved one while providing closure in a serene yet stunning setting. Docked in Newport Harbor, the boat is a completely renovated and elegantly appointed 67' Chris Craft yacht, not a sport fishing boat nor small power boat.  Reasonably priced according to the number of passengers (1-6 people at $800, 7-49 people at $975) each private charter lasts approximately 1.5 - 2 hours and serves only your family members and only your loved ones cremains are scattered.  Our captain will provide beverages, music, and a flower for each guest, perform a simple, meaningful ceremony, disperse the remains, and circle the site before heading back to the harbor. There is no additional charge for weekend charters. This service is also available to families where the cremation was performed elsewhere. Families can also choose to add, at an additional cost, a biodegradeable urn, a biodegradeable floral arrangement (both of which can be placed in the water) and/or white doves which can be released at the end of the service (see below).  Without exception, families call to share with us their overwhelming satisfaction with their experience.

The Omega Society can arrange a nearby location for a private memorial service, with or without the remains present, where family and friends can gather to commemorate the life of their loved one. Omega also has contacts for ministers, musicians, and florists.


The release of white doves at the conclusion of a funeral or memorial service on land or at sea is yet another opportunity to provide a breath taking, personal touch to a service. Reasonably priced according to the number of doves requested, doves add a symbolic and poignant final tribute to the life of a loved one, and provide a special feeling of peace, serenity and awe at the conclusion of a service.


For years, traditional funeral homes have held families hostage in the purchase of caskets. As a cornerstone profit center in funeral service, funeral homes have battled to prevent the outside purchase of caskets. The law has since stepped in to prohibit any funeral home from preventing a family from purchasing a casket elsewhere, allowing families to price shop intelligently. In our quest to assist families in keeping costs down, The Omega Society offers a complete line of American made, high quality, name-brand caskets at the most affordable prices anywhere -- even less than the discount stores. Our price-competitive caskets are available to both families using our services and those using the services of another funeral home.  Often, families think that they will save money by buying a casket at Costco or online.  However, they may not realize is that there could be delays in shipping or damage to the casket, all of which can effect the service date.  Omega Society can provide an equally low cost casket and make sure that the casket arrives on time and without damage.


In keeping with our core philosophy of offering a complete line of high quality products and services without the high price, The Omega Society offers a full selection of beautiful cremation urns, customized granite headstones, high quality burial vaults and a full selection of abundant floral arrangements, all at exceptionally affordable prices.
