First of all, the donation of your body and organs is free to the giver, and second of all some places will even pay for the cremation of the remains remaining! As with most things, it is a good idea to plan ahead and register in advance. There is also no guarantee that they will accept your remains. That probably sounds a little bit strange — but there are certain things they look for — not too obese, not infected with certain diseases (HIV, Tuberculosis, etc.) and other factors.
