Cremation by Funeral Pyre in Crestone Colorado

Quote:
Cremation by funeral pyre or “open-air cremation” is now available for a few people in the United States. We’ve just added an article on it in our Disposition Resource Center.

A funeral pyre is one of the world’s oldest cremation traditions. A body is placed upon a structure packed with flamable materials and ignighted. The pyre is designed to burns at a very hot temperature in order to reduce a human body to a few pounds of ashes. Pyres are used for the cremation in Hinduism & Sikhism. Vikings disposed of their dead with funeral pyres.

What do Hindus in the US do at the moment? Are they unable to have funerals which are in accordance with their religious customs?

In the UK, open air pyres aren't allowed, but they're placed in buildings with no roof - ie just four walls. This came about after a long legal battle by a Hindu guru who finally won his case to be allowed such a cremation in 2010.
