In the 19th century, the development of new furnace technology and contact with cultures that practiced cremation led to its reintroduction in the Western world.
The organized movement to instate cremation as a viable method for body disposal began in the 1870s.

What is Cremation?
Cremation is the final disposition of the dead body through burning.
In some countries, including India and Nepal, cremation on an open-air pyre is an ancient tradition. Starting in the 19th century, cremation was introduced or reintroduced into other parts of the world. In modern times, cremation is commonly carried out with a closed furnace (cremator) at a crematorium.
Why Cremation/crematorium is better?
There is a subsequent rise in cremation these days due to:
Lower cost: Costs lesser than burial and at the same time all traditional chores are also taken care of.
Customization: Since there is more room for personalization that is for the collection and scattering of the remains of the deceased.
Increase in Environmental Awareness: In a way, it is helpful by not using the land, wood, and other chemicals during the embalming process.
Reduced Religious attachments: we can witness that at much higher people are choosing crematoriums over burials
Flexible timings: Due to family members being put up in different places all around the world, this way is even better in case the deceased did not plan anything.
