The Royal National Lifeboat Institution has a wonderful section on its website - pages devoted to a Forever By The Sea fund, which honours a loved one. You set up a page in memory of the particular individual, and then you can upload photos, light candles and make donations (which will go towards helping the RNLI charity).
The RNLI, a charity dear to my father's heart and now mine - especially since I have so many ancestors who had something to do with the sea - states on their website: "The volunteer lifeboat crews of the RNLI have been selflessly saving lives at sea since [they have saved over 139,000 lives and rely on over 40,000 volunteers]. The RNLI receives no financial support from the UK Government. So today, as always, we depend on the generosity of the public to be able to carry out rescues, and our crews are much busier than ever."
