Different countries probably vary, but in the UK this would be out of the question. Crematoria here do occasional "open days", when the public can go "behind the scenes", but you would not get to see dead bodies.
I tried this in Norway. I was initially trying to get a job there and was in dialogue with the agency that was contracted to operate the place. There was no chance of employment but i was invited to take a look in the oven:)
I hope it wasn't occupied at the time!
I was kind of disappointed about not getting the position and ended up not going to look but they offered me to look at bodies being burned. However if i remember correctly they told me that they got bodies packed in bodybags that the bags went straight in the oven and that there were cameras monitoring the burning as well as the option to look directly into the oven.

The funeral parlor jobs are quite lucrative and it is way easier albeit not that easy to get work there compared to getting a job at the crematoriums i think.

I came to add something, but I also bookmarked quite a few links here. Thanks for sharing, all.

Personally what I have used for asubha in the past was "Body Worlds," Gunther von Hagens' plastinations.


Whenever I see a beautiful woman in public, I recall Body Worlds and....ya....it helps.

Will not post any pics; a google search of "body worlds" will more than suffice if anyone is interested.
Buddhists, beware of spiritual transvestites.

Good asubha resource?
Perhaps, but seeing that original image on this Forum, could trigger lust among some males. I know the intention is good, but this image is a bit intense, imo; perhaps a link to the video would be more appropriate, rather than just scrolling down then suddenly there's a naked woman...

I think I already mentioned this in this thread but I'll just say again that there is a relatively active facebook group on this topic I can add people to, if you are interested send me a friend request & message here:

Born, become, arisen – made, prepared, short-lived
Bonded by decay and death – a nest for sickness, perishable
Produced by seeking nutriment – not fit to take delight in


Departure from this is peaceful – beyond reasoning and enduring
Unborn, unarisen – free from sorrow and stain
Ceasing of all factors of suffering – stilling of all preparations is bliss
