No hearse at all.

After declaration of death (and independent confirmation of two other sources) I have left instructions to salvage for usable parts.Corneas, heart, liver, kidneys, skin, marrow-anything the doctors believe will be useful for transplant and growth medium will be salvaged. If there is anything useful remaining, parts of interest (brain for neurological research, cadaver to practice surgery techniques etc) will be forwarded to the first university that wishes them. If there are still parts unclaimed, they will be disposed of as biomedical waste and eventually nourish the soil somewhere.

Relatives will probably insist on a headstone and memorial service instead of a simple wake and good memories-but that's their waste and not mine. I'm going out recycling.
