Is embalming necessary?

The function of embalming is to ensure disinfection and preservation of the deceased during the funeral period. It can also ensure a more natural appearance of the deceased.

Sometimes if the funeral is delayed for some reason or if the deceased has to be transferred to another city or country embalming is mandatory.

The staff at Radcliffe funeral service can discuss the options with you and help you make the right choice.

We have experienced and qualified staff who will carry out the embalming process and at all times the deceased will be treated with the upmost respect and dignity.


Embalming is a skilled process and should only be performed by trained practitioners who are members of the Australian Institute of Embalmers.
