Cremation is the act of disposing of a deceased person’s body by burning the body’s remains.

Caskets are not required for a cremation however the body should be placed in a rigid container such as an unfinished wooden box (usually provided by the mortuary). Some states do not require a container.

Cremated remains can be placed in a niche in a columbarium (a set of niches designed to hold containers of created remains), buried, scattered, or kept by the family. It is not required to purchase an urn for the remains, although it may be more aesthetically pleasing.

Direct cremation is when a body is cremated within a short time of the death.
