Thank you for your request for information, received on 25 December 2021.

I can confirm that the total number of marine licences for burials at sea by the Marine Management Organisation since 01 January 2015 is 95.

According to records held by the MMO, no licences were issued for burials at sea within the Irish Sea.

For future reference, it might be helpful to know that this information is proactively available within our online public register: https://marinelicensing.marinemanagement...
If you use the 'advance search' you can search by application type 'Burial at sea' which will list all licences applied for, and issues, by the MMO.
