Medical Body Donation

Carnes Funeral Home is dedicated to providing caring, personalized and detailed services to you and your family in your time of bereavement. Our Medical Body Donation Program is a meaningful way for you or a loved one to contribute to the furthering of science and medicine, while making a positive impact for your community and mankind.

Most medical schools, and several private organizations, accept donations of whole bodies for use in research and education. We work in close coordination with several programs, and usually can place a donation for those who are interested in doing so.

Most of these donor-accepting programs offer a no-cost cremation option following the donation; alternatively, you can request the return of the cremated remains.

Please note, a screening process is involved and determines eligibility.

You may also call either of these two numbers to initiate the screening process or to learn more:
713.943.2500 or 409.986.9900

Comprehensive funeral, cremation and donation services, affordably priced

Carnes Funeral Home can assist with, advise and take care of all pre-planning and at need funerals, cremations, burials, memorials, or medical body donation services of your choosing.

We will also accept your pre-need plan, even if you purchased it at another funeral establishment.

Carnes Funeral Home provides services at lower than competitive prices, easing the pressure of your “at time of need” experience.
