Still haven't done any real research into the whys and wherefores of that.
As to the Romans, an interesting sub-note is that despite the Roman preference for cremation, the Corneli always buried their dead. With the exception of Sulla ... who presumably didn't want to end up like Marius.

What the deviation in favour of burials said about the Corneli may be anything or nothing.

Also, the I think the Pythagoreans preferred burial.
