Choosing a Cremation Casket
A cremation casket is a dignified way to move the deceased until the body is cremated. If a funeral service is performed prior to the final disposition, a casket may be needed to display the body as well. With the cremation process in mind, the casket should be free of metal parts, leak-proof, and sturdy enough for transportation of the mortal remains of the decedent.
