A cremation container is a container that the body is placed in for the cremation process. Cremation containers range from a mahogany unit to a rigid, leak resistant, combustible, corrugated box. The family may elect to have a funeral service or visitation with the body present in the container selected. A direct cremation would consist of only family identification of the body in the cremation container. The family would then be given the option of having a visitation or a memorial service without the body present. Other containers are constructed of cherry, oak, pine and canvas cloth or gray flannel covered wood. Any hardwood casket is acceptable to use as well. A cremation container constructed of wood, similar to a hardwood casket used for burial, is available as a rental container.
