I need to know what are the situations that one should be cremated or buried in Hinduism.

This is with reference to married or unmarried persons cremation process. If there is different rituals in sects we being Hindu should know it.

    People after living for a long time get attached to the body, this is the reason why their body is cremated, only in case of children and saints, they are buried, the reason being children have hardly lived long enough to get attached to body and saints have already realized body to be Maya so they don't care for the body either. – Chinmay Sarupria Dec 7 '16 at 17:51

    Possible duplicate of why do hindus believe in cremation instead of burial. – Sarvabhouma Dec 9 '16 at 7:26
