There was a time when people wouldn't look beyond a traditional burial after a person passed away. However, many are not opting for cremation. However, family members are sometimes unsure about exactly how the process should be carried out. They are also not very sure whether a casket would be required in case a cremation has to be organized. Here is some information that will help.

· Regardless of whether you are conducting a cremation or a burial, you would require a casket. However, you have the option to choose a very basic one in the case of cremation.

· The casket is required because the mortal remains would have to be transported from the funeral home to the crematorium.

· When the body is in a casket, the funeral home staff members can handle all of the modalities in a dignified way when they are preparing the body for a funeral service.

· Crematorium operators are not licensed to handle the human remains directly. This is why family members need to make sure that they have a casket for the mortal remains of their loved one.

Types of Caskets

There are many different types of caskets that you can choose from ranging from very elaborate ones to something straightforward. The one you choose would be entirely dependent on your specific preferences and budget.

If you are not very sure about which one would suit your requirements, you can have discussions with the funeral director. They will provide you all the information you require about the designs, styles as well as pricing, which will help you make better decisions about the type of casket you want. Many families select cardboard caskets as they are an environment-friendly option and very cost effective too.
