Direct Burial

Direct BurialA direct burial takes place when the deceased is buried shortly after death without any funeral service or other formal ceremony. Thornton’s Funeral Home will obtain the death certificate and required permits, prepare the body, and arrange transportation to the cemetery for burial.

There are several coffin options available. Thornton’s is happy to assist you in making your selection.

Direct burials are considered an economical burial option but the cost of the cemetery plot should be taken into account when figuring total expenses.
