Your Questions


Is it leagal to bury a body without a coffin/casket?
Good question! As a general rule, few jurisdictions have any law requiring a casket. However, many cemeteries require a casket or other "suitable container" to encase remains delivered to the cemetery to avoid the public spectacle of a body being carried through the cemetery without the dignity most people would expect. Some cemeteries permit remains to be buried without caskets if the religious custom of the deceased requires only a shroud, such as some Islamic sects. Others require no casket but do require an outer container, primarily as a ground support.
