Note on the statistics of cremations:
Latest figures obtainable.
80% of Thai people are Buddhist and therefore cremation is the usual method of disposal. With the exception of the Northern Province where open air cremation in a cemetery is still the custom, crematoria are located at temples which could number 20,000. However the above figure is based on the number of crematoria that have registered with the Department of Provincial Administration Thailand since 1993.
There is no national cremation society in Thailand. All information is provided by the following organisation.
Siam Funeral & Repatriation Co. Ltd.
21/7 TRS Building, 4th Floor
