    finders international - pauper's funeral - public health funerals

    ...Genealogy service Finders International has set up a charitable trust to help pay for public health funerals. Councils can apply for a subsidy in cases where there are no next of kin.

    Finders International managing director Daniel Curran said its funeral fund “can help local authorities significantly with finance, while also confirming whether or not there are next of kin — free of charge”.

    seems redicilous councils need funding they own the grave yards in the first place charge Iver 1200+ from people who have families the least they can do for any unfortunate person who doesn't have any family is bury them without looking for a cashcow to pay for it.

    With no next of kin I'm surprised they don't hand them over to medical science and let them pay for the disposal of the corpse.

    They are not being buried are they plots are very expensive its just burning them up with some honour and scattering ashes.

    kester - the bodies may not be fit for medical science.

    i've signed the forms to have my body donated after death but they're quite picky about the condition of bodies they'll accept.

    i carry a donor card in my wallet which says "in event of my death, contact the london anatomy office".
