Important Note: Viewing of the body is a choice of the family. In most cases, embalming is required or recommended for public viewing/visitation, mausoleum entombment, or transfer of remains via common carrier (i.e. shipment by air or rail). When possible, the funeral home needs authorization from the next of kin for embalming.

Except in certain 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 usually have the right to choose an arrangement, which does not require you to pay for it, such as a direct cremation, immediate burial and/or one-time ID viewing for family only. If you elect NOT to order embalming, State law requires refrigeration of an unembalmed body that is held for over 24 hours from the time of death.
