Question Box: Cremation

Q. Can Mormons get cremated after death?

The answer more and more is yes. Please see the article on Organ Donation and the Resurrection.

The real issue is how we respect our bodies, and cremation seems a little harsh to Western sensibilities, but as the Church becomes more global, it has accepted the ways that death is dealt with around the world.  The advise is to pray about it, consult with your bishop if necessary, and act as the Spirit directs.
