What is Direct Burial?

This type of burial option is an alternative to traditional burial procedures through a funeral home. The remains are buried within a few days of passing, without a formal funeral service. Rather than an expensive casket, a simple container is used, and because the remains are buried shortly after the death, no embalming is necessary. There is no viewing or wake prior to the burial. You can, however, hold a graveside funeral service or memorial service (additional fees apply).

Direct burial is a popular option for those wishing to save money while planning their final arrangements in advance, as well as for those families who cannot afford the high cost of a funeral.

Do you have an immediate need, or are you planning ahead?

Our care team can help you with any request, and we are available 24/7. If you’re not sure what to do first, just call Luddy Cremation Care at 860.357.4622.

Low Cost Solutions for a Difficult Time

Recently needed help with a cremation. 2nd time during my lifetime I had to deal with a death. First time took years to pay off (not Luddy). I highly recommend Luddy. I talked with Eric and he was easy to work with. The forms on their website were very helpful. As far as I’m concerned, pleasant, honest people NOT trying to rip you off during sorrow. Thank you, Eric.

Met with Ben yesterday. He was very helpful and professional. I lost my Aunt and I felt at peace knowing he was handling her cremation and all the little details. The price was exactly as we agreed. I highly recommend Luddy Cremation Care.

Working with this funeral home was a breeze! The staff was very professional and compassionate. From our first meeting to last, Queen was very helpful and kind as she helped us with our decision for a urn that we will bury when possible. With all the covid restrictions now everything is more difficult and we still were able to fulfill our mom’s wishes …thank you from the Arena and Miceli Familia.

Using Luddy’s cremation care was an absolutely fantastic experience they were so helpful and so kind especially at a time that is so difficult to go through. And I’d like to give a special thanks to Ben and Laura for making my experience so fantastic thank you.

I was lost when my husband passed away suddenly. He did not have insurance. Luddy couldn’t have been kinder & easy to deal with. I had no clue what to do! They are angels to me!

We used Luddy Cremation Care when my father passed away recently and they made the whole experience as painless as it could be… Definitely a great, and more affordable, option if you don’t need the full services of a funeral home.
