Death during immigration voyage aboard ship

I found who I think is my husband's great grandfather from Lucca, however, this immigration record states that he, along with all the other names listed died at sea during the voyage. I see another name just below his that indicates this man is a friend who sailed with him to immigrate to N.Y., and on to CA., and both came from the same region of Lucca.
My question is: Wouldn't there be another ship manifest record while he was still alive prior to the time he died on ship, and were the corpses buried at sea or sent back to the family of their hometown origin?
