A post-mortem, sometimes referred to as an autopsy, is an examination of a person who has died to determine the exact cause of death.Post-mortems provide useful information about how, when and why a loved one died, and they enable pathologists to obtain a better understanding of how diseases spread. Learning more about illnesses and medical conditions benefits other patients too, because it means they will receive more effective treatment in the future.
Embalming is a surgical procedure to introduce a preservative and sanitizing fluid into the body tissues via the arterial system. The body is washed, dressed and prepared as you would wish. We could provide perfect embalming, post-mortem and mortuary facility arrangements if required. Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing. If you do not want embalming, you have the right to choose an arrangement such as immediate burial or direct cremation
