Some of those screws probably came from the casket he was cremated in.

I don't think people are cremated in caskets. Just them and the burners

Crappie Luck is correct on this. They may transport the body in a cardboard box but remove them before creamation. We did what was called direct cremation on my BIL. No embalming just pick up from the place of death and transport to the crematory. My fishing buddy they went the entire route with embalming and showing at the funeral home in a regular casket but didn't burn the casket....Believe it or not they rent caskets for such occasions. Just return them to the funeral home, clean them up and use them the next time.
Reason I know this was I was in charge of taking care of my BIL's passing and called several funeral homes on prices and how things would work out.

The main reason most choose creamation its cheaper, than the cost of casket and burial plot and headstone$$$$$$.

That could change though, if Obama were re-elected. The casket makers union could have him impose some regulations on the smoke going out the chimmeys of the crematories, that would therefore make Caskets cheaper than creamations \:\)

True story.

When dad died, we had him cremated per his wishes. This was not long after the cremation debacle that took place in Georgia ("cremated" people showing up in farm ponds, etc) so I grilled the owner of the crematory pretty hard to ensure everything was on the up and up.

They had just opened a new crematory on the west side of the city (THE city, Chicago) much to the dismay of the area's residents. Neighbors had been complaining about the smoke and odors, even before the crematory was finished and put into operation. After about the 10th call the crematory owners invited the local CFD fire captain, the local alderman, and a couple of news types.

They were given a good tour of the crematory, and at the end of the tour the alderman wanted to know what was different when they were actually doing a cremation. The owner told them, we were cremating a body during the tour - you didn't notice?

Needless to say, further complaints were ignored by the powers that be. \:D
