Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Death, Extinction, Expiration are some antonyms.
Unresurrected exists in dictionaries and is encountered in poems and literature. However context is required to establish the meaning and the relevant appropriate antonym.
It's hard to make a suggestion as the question itself does not clarify context.
Maybe bury can work in some contexts (but probably not really an antonym).
The antonym will depend on how you view resurrection.
If you see it as a process of making a dead person live, then the opposite is making a live person dead and the antonym would be kill or a synonym of kill.
If you view resurrect as ending the state of death, then the opposite would be not ending the state of death. This could be to do nothing instead of resurrecting, which means the antonym is dead, or arguably it could be any action and hence any verb except 'resurrect', as in NOT-resurrect. The same argument says that the opposite of red is NOT-red, which is any colour except red.
