When your loved ones pass away, you plan their funeral and look for best possible cremation options. You place the body of a deceased member in a cremated container, which can be a traditional casket or a cardboard box, before the cremation ritual is performed.
A cremation casket is quite useful where relatives decide to conduct traditional funeral service before actual cremation. This may involve a last viewing of the body by all his closed ones and a speech with respect to the beautiful time spent by them with the deceased person during his lifetime. A casket can be made up of only wood, cloth-covered wood, wicker or bamboo material. It can either be purchased or can be hired on rent. If you hire an expensive casket on rent, then you can perform the cremation ceremony in a cardboard box or an alternative container. There are many rental casket providers who assist you in acquiring the right casket in accordance with your requirements.
There are different types of caskets options available to you. Some of the funeral homes are extremely environment-conscious and sell green caskets, which are entirely built up of natural and fully combustible materials like wicker, teak, wool, cotton, bamboo etc. If you are looking for budget-friendly options and alternatives to expensive or rented containers, you can go for a recyclable cardboard box, which is designed like a typical casket and can be used for cremation. Every culture exhibits different rituals and therefore, funeral planning companies manufacture and offer variety of caskets. For instance, Jewish caskets are specifically designed for Jewish funerals. These fully combustible containers are completely made of wood and do not contain any metal parts.
Most of the people do not buy or rent any type of casket, in which case, the crematory itself provides a container, which resembles a cardboard box as an alternative to the casket. The price of the caskets depends on the type of casket you want to buy or the kind of funeral service you are planning for. You can rent an expensive casket in a formal funeral service, which comes in hundreds of dollars price range and can, later on, choose cardboard container for cremation ritual.
A large and elegant piece of the casket, which you may have ordered online, can cost thousands of dollars and may offset any savings.
