TOPIC: Clarification in North Carolina

Clarification in North Carolina 07 Mar 2014 11:06 #893

Hello, I have scoured the internet looking for information about whether or not I can be buried on my farm with my family actually digging the hole and placing me in the ground in MY "home built" box, WITHOUT a vault. COMPLETLY bypassing the entire funeral home.

I found a document written by "Funeral Ethics Organization" in Hinesburg, VT. called "Your Funeral Consumer Rights in North Carolina"

It appears from there info that I can do all of the above. I just would like a verification from another source as confirmation.

Thank you,

Hi Kenney,

Yes, the pamphlet from Funeral Ethics Organization is correct that you can do the burial you're looking for. The woman who published the pamphlets is Lisa Carlson, co-author with me of the book "Final Rights." We researched the laws in all 50 states for the book, and that pamphlet draws on our material.

Good luck!
