Cremation Caskets are coffins that are intended to be displayed at a funeral, but, in many cases, they are not ultimately buried.
The main difference between cremation caskets and standard caskets for burial is that they are often made up of lighter weight materials. They often appear as luxurious as the heavier version used for burial.
While sometimes cremation caskets are sent directly to the crematorium with the deceased’s body, often their purpose is only for display of a body at a funeral service. In this case, prior to the cremation being conducted, the body is transferred to a simpler “cremation container” in which it will be cremated.
As with many funeral options, the choice of using a cremation casket is completely personal. If you think a cremation casket would be appropriate, be sure to discuss the renting or buying options with your funeral director to find the one that best fits your financial and situational needs.
