Immediate Burials

Immediate Burial is an option for people whom do not wish to be embalmed and also do not wish to be cremated.  Sometimes this is referred to as a green burial.  In our area most all cemeteries require the use of a burial vault.  However, there are not any requirements on the use of a casket.  With an immediate burial a casket is optional.  There are some state laws regarding time frames between death and burial.  Our funeral home has an on site refrigeration system to help extend the holding time if needed.

If a family chooses immediate burial, this does not mean a Memorial Service can not be held.  A service can be held almost anywhere and Carlsen Funeral Home is here to help and plan.
