Immediate Burial


This service is offered for those who need to facilitate a burial but are unable to attend the burial; or the body is being shipped from a distant state for burial here in Northwest Connecticut. Immediate burials are also provided by Gleeson-Ryan Funeral Home and then a Memorial Service is held at a future date.

Our charges for Immediate Burial, without any attendant rites or ceremonies, include:

  • Basic services of funeral director, staff, and overhead.
  • Initial transfer from place of death
  • Local transportation to cemetery

The Immediate Burial service does not include:

  • A casket
  • The cemetery required burial vault
  • Cemetery grave preparation fees

Burial is at the convenience of the cemetery and funeral home personnel.
