In the first Star Wars (spoilers incoming), there is a scene where Luke, Ben, and the 'droids come across a bunch of dead Jawas. These were the same Jawas that had found and sold the 'droids, and they'd been killed by the same Stormtroopers who killed Luke's aunt and uncle. But before the main characters leave for Mos Eisley, they make sure to throw the bodies into a pile and light them on fire.
Now this, to me, seems like a potentially incredibly offensive thing to do. Funerary practices are really important to many cultures here on Earth, and I know there are some sects of Christianity that are wholly against cremation. Similarly, think of the Fremen from Dune, to whom cremation would be an unforgivable waste of water. Considering the Jawas are scavengers, I'd have assumed they'd want their bodies, or at least their personal belongings, to be put to good use rather than just burned.
Is there any explanation given for whose idea it was to burn these bodies, and why they thought that was the best thing to do? Is there any indication that Jawas prefer to be set on fire when they die? Is it possible the 'droids were just getting revenge on their former captors by denying them access to their afterlife?
