During cremation: is the body naked or clothed?

For a long time, it has been customary for both burials and cremations to be carried out with the most beloved belongings of the deceased, while they were buried or cremated with soft clothing.

This has been modified over time, and nowadays, cremations are no longer so permissible in terms of clothing and accessories of the deceased, since it is not considered entirely safe.

This is where the question that many people have arises: are the bodies cremated with clothes on? There are cremation services that under no circumstances will cremation services be performed with any type of clothing. However, there is no law governing this practice of cremation, so there are funeral home providers that do perform cremations with clothing.

What should I consider when cremating our loved ones?

Funeral services that offer traditional cremation give us, in some cases, some options:

  • They can provide us with a dressing service, which means that they sell us funeral clothes to dress the deceased and cremate him/her.
  • Other services give us the opportunity to dress our family member in his or her favorite clothes.
  • During the cremation process, the body may be cremated wrapped in a sheet if a dressing service has not been contracted.

One of the issues to keep in mind is that there are many funeral services that cremations can be performed with clothing or accessories. However, not all fabrics are allowed, and certainly not all accessories.

So, what are the clothes and accessories that can be worn by the deceased at the time of cremation?

What are the clothes and accessories that the deceased may wear at the time of cremation?

No matter which cremation service you hire, there are some materials that, being non-combustible, may cause damage to the cremation chamber.

Likewise, as there is a list of accessories or garments that should be dispensed with to dress the deceased before cremation, there is a list of the ideal accessories to do so:

  • Wood
  • Cardboard
  • Cotton fabrics
  • Wool clothing or garments

However, the materials that are avoided at the time of cremation are the following:

  • Plastic
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Fabrics that may contain chemicals
  • Electronic mechanical devices
  • Rubber
  • Clothes with zipper

Because there are deprivations and allowances and, in each case, it depends on your funeral provider, it is important that before choosing what clothing and accessories to dress the deceased in, you inform yourself of the guidelines for doing so correctly.

During cremations, bodies may enter the chamber either in clothing that we can purchase at the service or in their own clothing.
