In Pennsylvania, funeral directors licensed by the State Board of Funeral Directors are required to promptly prepare and bury the deceased person entrusted to their care within 10 days, unless they receive special permission from the board granting them a longer period of time.
Vaults or other types of outer burial containers are not required by federal or Pennsylvania state law to be placed in the ground prior to a casket being buried. However, most cemeteries in Lancaster County require, as a minimum, the use of a non-sealed grave liner.
A direct burial is the funeral director's least expensive burial option. The cost will range depending on the funeral home, but it is fair to say that a direct burial can be arranged for in the region of $1,200 to $1,600.
Read up on the local laws in your state. Most states make it legal to take a body home from the hospital, nursing home, or other places of death and bury it on your private property. As stated above, only 3 states prohibit home burials: Indiana, California, and Washington State.
Can You Bury a Body at Home? There are no state laws in Pennsylvania prohibiting home burial, but local governments may have rules governing private burials. Before burying a body on private property or establishing a family cemetery, you should check with the county or town clerk for any zoning laws you must follow.
