A tag for crematorium, where bodies are burned.

How to Map

Add a node to the centre of the crematorium or draw an area along the building outline. Tag the node or area with amenity=crematorium.

Note: it appears to be fairly common for crematoria that aren't in cemeteries to have an area drawn around the whole crematorium grounds and the tag applied to that, with the building(s) drawn inside that area, similar to mapping schools (as one example). A simple analysis of NW Europe data in January 2016 using Overpass and JOSM found that 18% of ways tagged amenity=crematorium didn't have a building tag of any description. Examples: way 367767828, way 90992600, way 86315052

Pet Crematoria

In the United Kingdom there are a number (perhaps 20 or more) of pet crematoria. At present these are shown by adding crematorium=pet as an additional tag.
