My dad did that. He died in hospital, so the details of him wanting to go to medical science were on his records.
The relevant department sent someone to collect his body and take it.
There was no funeral, car, flowers, coffin, nothing. We were asked if we'd like a little service to be conducted by the hospital chaplain a couple of weeks later. We had that so that my dad's friends and siblings could also attend. There was no charge, just a donation if we wanted to.
After almost 2 years, the hospital department wrote to us, asking if we'd like our dad's remains so that we could have a burial or cremation. We declined.
My husband and me decided that we'd like to donate our bodies to medical science, so we contacted the hospital and completed the paperwork they sent us. We have got a copy at home, and our dGP surgery has the other copy.
