Orthodox Funeral Services hire only the best trained embalmers. Embalmers are those who are responsible for preparing the deceased for burial starting from disinfecting the body to preserving it for the funeral services. They are the most qualified professionals who treat the deceased with chemicals for the body’s preservation.
Embalming is the process of chemically treating the deceased to temporarily delay decomposition and to restore a more natural appearance. In Australi embalming process is not required in all funeral services. Most of the time, it is requested only in the following instances: when viewing is arranged, when the timeline between time of death and the funeral service is distant, if the burial is above ground like a crypt, vault, tomb or mausoleum, or in cases of international or interstate repatriation is required.
Our embalming service is usually performed in our premises and under controlled room conditions, however clients can request for an out of town service. We are known for personalised and customised services and this is one way we adhere to this.
The Orthodox Funeral’s process of embalming is continuously assessed to make sure that all the regulations relating to health and sanitation are complied with. We acknowledge that safety and environmental standards must be met as well as maintained all the time and further backed up with insurance arrangements. Embalming is made during normal working hours, but requests can be made for emergencies and weekends especially when this will help assist the Funeral Director in arranging for the funeral.
Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person by resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under the valid will.
It would be a good idea to speak to the executor of the will or your solicitor about legal matters.
