CARE OF REMAINS
Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangement, such as direct cremations or with viewing. If you do not want embalming you usually have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial.
