Public statement

Full fathom five thy father lies; Of his bones are coral made; Those are pearls that were his eyes: Nothing of him that doth fade But doth suffer a sea-change Into something rich and strange. Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell.

Extended public statement

Fans of William Shakespeare may be familiar with the phrase full fathom five thy father lies, which appears in his play The Tempest. By convention, a burial at sea traditionally took place at a depth of at least five fathoms. It has been suggested that bodies buried at this depth are less likely to float back up, but more probably sailors simply wanted to ensure that their fellows were soundly submerged as a token of respect. On land, a traditional burial is usually performed at a depth of one fathom, leading to the slang term six feet under.
