Additional Resources

State Anatomy Board: 410-547-1222

The State Anatomy Board uses a body that has been donated for the purpose of medical research and education.

The Anatomy Board assumes immediate custody of the body, so there cannot be a funeral service with the body present. However, the family may elect to have a memorial service at any time.

The individual must pre-register to have his or her body donated. Next-of-kin or medical power of attorney cannot register for another person.

Cremains can be interred at a dedicated gravesite in Sykesville, MD. If they are returned to family, the cremains may not be very complete, and it may take over a yea. Cremation is paid for by the State Anatomy Board.

Anatomy Gift Registry: 800-300-5433

The Anatomy Gift Registry uses tissue for the purpose of medical study.

Similarly to the Anatomy Board, the Gift Registry assumes custody of the body upon death. Again, the body cannot be present for a funeral service but the family can have a memorial service at any time. Registry may be by the individual, and also by next-of-kin, before or after death. Cremains are returned to next-of-kin, sometimes within a month. Cremation is paid for by the Anatomy Gift Registry.
