IME can find pretty much whatever you want from religions, and that even without leaving the "mainstream" - just have to ask around as practices vary from place to place and even Church to Church of the same sect. and they tend to be pragmatic when needed, especially if you turn up with facts on the ground (i.e. body already cremated).
In this case, cremation (for cost, simplicity and speed reasons) likely a pragmatic route
that is doable in practice.
Am conscious that this thread not really for a wide ranging discussion, but from the sounds of him I doubt Jay would mind if his demise abroad throws up a few pointers for others who find themselves in same circumstances.
