Yes you can buy. Burial insurance (aka funeral insurance) is a basic issue life insurance policy that covers people's burial expenses.

Burial insurance is promoted as a way to pay in advance for your funeral expenses so that your loved ones won't have to pay for your funeral. There are many things you can do to make your death easier on the wallets of those you love. Planning your funeral saves money and grief, as well as deciding whether you want to be buried in a casket or cremated and put into and urn, figuring out who gets what part of your estate, and which company to choose for your perfect life insurance policy (if you're a senior).
