Although I'm not sure why the bodies had to be cremated, watch the end of "Return of the Jedi", you will see on Endor there are the ghosts of Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Anakin. So we know that at least Anakin becomes a ghost in the end. I heard from a friend that the novel that goes along with all movies has already been released. Supposedly Anakin has some kind of fight scene in a volcano or something.

I hope it explains why Obi-Wan and Yoda disappeared and became ghosts, while Darth Vader and Qui-Gon had to be cremated. They were all Jedi after all.
