laid to rest
   dead
   A monumental favourite, as in at rest:
    She came to the end of the road only five months after we had laid Father to rest, so they were not parted long. (Tyrrell, 1973)
   Anyone dying at sea might be laid in the lockers, for subsequent burial on land, but if you died beyond the Thames estuary town of Gravesend, your corpse would be disposed of at sea.
