Good job I am not a Catholic anymore as mine are being scattered in my garden. Even so ashes are the property
of the next of kin. It should be up to them to decide what to do with them unless otherwise specified. The only
reason the bias against cremation exists is because Jesus was buried. However that was a couple of millennia
ago and things are rather different now. There are two billion Catholics in the world. If they are all going to
be buried that is going to take a lot of space. Cremation is therefore more practical regardless of tradition
