Our Story

Cremation Society of Chittenden County has been serving the Burlington area community for many years. We’re thankful to be an important part of this community and will continue our longstanding legacy of helping families honor their loved ones.



How We're Different

Family Owned Operated

The Ready family and our staff believe that we are accountable to you. We believe that the most valuable thing we own is our reputation. We are kind, gentle, and knowledgeable men and women who respect your right to choose without pressure or undue influence. Every staff associate is expected and empowered to do anything it takes to serve your family well.


Personalized Services

Our staff is specially selected and trained to facilitate services that reflect your needs. Our goal is to listen, suggest, organize, and carry out ceremonies that will be comforting and full of meaning.



We provide more options than any other firm because we serve a varied clientele who expect to have many choices available to them.


Price and Value

We understand that we get only one chance to perform our work sensitively and correctly, and for three generations we have voluntarily adhered to high standards. There are other funeral homes who proclaim that they are less expensive but cut corners with staff, facilities, and procedures. We attract and retain the best staff possible, many of our staff members have been with Ready for over 20 years - our people provide consistently outstanding care to those we serve. Our facilities are clean, spacious and consistently renovated and easily the nicest in Chittenden County. Every family we serve receives a follow-up survey, phone call and personal thank you for entrusting their loved one in our care. The positive responses we receive confirm the importance of giving people quality and value for what they spend.


Before and After Funeral

We provide free assistance with pre-planning. You also have the option of locking in today's prices and funding your plan or simply placing your wishes on file and allowing the costs to be paid at the time of need. At the funeral arrangements we provide a customized package of helpful materials on the grief process. We can provide assistance to people in need about support groups, and we are happy to offer books, videos, and other materials designed to assist children, adolescents, and adults.


Choose competence. Choose people who care.
Choose the best value for what you spend.
You will never regret choosing quality.
