"French oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau was laid to rest Thursday
in the southwestern French town where he was born. Cousteau was buried
in the family plot in Saint-Andre-de-Cubzac, a town of 5,000 outside
Bordeaux. Some 30 family members were joined at the funeral by several
hundred admirers who gathered outside the cemetery wall to pay their
last respects to the captain of the Calypso, the converted British
minesweeper which took Cousteau to the far corners of the globe in
search of knowledge and adventure."

Why do they bury a man on land whose life was spent on and in the sea?

Does anyone know how the other three were disposed?
