Hi everybody,

I am doing researches about hospital ships and I was wondering something. Do you know what they would do of soldiers who passed away during the trip from the battlefields to the bases or the US ?
I am particularly interested about it in the Pacific zone.
Was there a cold/frozen room in each hospital ship to put dead soldiers until they could unload them ?

Thanks a lot in advance !

Hi Alex,

Interesting question. Haven't thought about this problem yet.
Sorry, I have no idea how this was handled and unfortunately no time for researching this matter.

In case anyone comes up with an answer, I would be also glad to read it!

So they would hold burials at sea unless they were close enough to land where there was a proper burial ground.

Most who died aboard ship though were buried at sea.
