Some Interesting Information about Cremation Caskets
by Kyle Goldstein
Cremation caskets, also known as cremation containers, are designed specifically for cremation. They are typically made of wood, cardboard, or a combination of both.
Cremation caskets are usually simple in design, as they do not need to be as ornate or durable as caskets used for burial.
Cremation caskets are required to meet certain standards set by the crematory and state laws. For example, they must be able to withstand the high temperatures of the cremation process and not release any harmful chemicals.
In some cases, a cremation casket may be used for a traditional funeral service with a visitation or viewing, followed by cremation.
Some people choose to have their loved one cremated in a rental casket, which is a casket that is used for the funeral service and then cremated with the body. The ashes are then returned to the family in an urn.
Cremation caskets can be purchased from funeral homes, online retailers, or specialty casket retailers. They can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, depending on the materials and design.
Some people choose to create their own cremation casket using natural materials, such as wicker or bamboo, or repurposing an old wooden chest or other container.
In addition to traditional cremation caskets, there are also biodegradable cremation caskets made from materials such as willow, bamboo, or cardboard, which are designed to break down naturally after cremation. These types of cremation caskets are a more environmentally friendly option.
