info required on marines chapel

#1
My brother was a marine , but sadly died in oslo in Jan 1989. I was unable to attend his funeral held at plymouth.
I was devasted to realise later that his ashes were buried at sea and that I would never be able to pay my respects.
I now understand that families can visit the marines chapel at stonehouse barracks where his name should be listed.
Does any one know how I go about making a visit to this chapel... is it on the actual base and would I have to request a pass from someone?
I would really like to go to where his ashes were scattered which i believe is at a place called plymouth Hoe. Can I do that?

Thanks for the replies to my post. I thought that his name might be at the National Memorial Arboretum so I will definetely be visiting that hopefully with my mother.
I would still like to know if I can get to visit the chapel at Stonehouse barracks.

I am sorry to hear about your brother.

I would suggest that you get in touch with RM Stonehouse to check that his name is listed and to make your request. The chaplaincy would be a good place to start.

Here are the details you need.

Do get in touch with them and let us know how you get on.
