The coffin is ALWAYS burned with the body. The body is not removed - the whole lot goes in.

Not everything burns to ash. Bones and so on are ground to a powder. Each body is done separately.

I'm sure someone told me that they remove false hips, etc, before they get cremated?
Pacemakers are removed, not false hips. Pacemakers may explode.

Burning the coffin seems a bit of a waste to me.
Why not get a job in the local crematorium or as an undertaker then you will know first hand !! What a morbid subject , are you thinking of departing soon and want too know what's going to happen to you ?
