I was looking into cremation for myself in the future after a close relative had died. Thinking this was a less expensive alternative to a traditional burial. The funeral home prices were almost identical for both traditional burial and cremation. They told me the reason was that state law required the body be embalmed before cremation and that this was a major expense. This makes no sense to me. Why should a person be embalmed before cremation?
