Burial is more biblical than cremation

John Piper has argued the case for Christian burial, which was the mainstream practice up to the late 19th century.

  I find headstones in cemeteries are sometimes testimonies and beautiful messages of faith, true hope and grace. Being dead some still speak. Christian hope is above all others as it rests, it stands on Christ the solid rock. All other ground is sinking sand. Burials services of Christians are times of rejoicing in the sure and certain provision of eternal life for those who belong to the Lord. None shall pluck them from the hand of Christ Jesus. To die in Christ is live for eternity in His presence. What joy! What a salvation!
