Anatomy Gifts Registry is a body donation organization based in Hanover, Maryland.Donating your body to science for medical research, training, or special needs like forensic testing is one of the most meaningful and cost-effective after-death funeral options a person can choose. You should take care in evaluating all of your body donation options, and when possible, pre-enrolling in one. Always make a back-up plan, though, since sometimes bodies aren't accepted and you and your family will need to know how to proceed with your death-care.
