Body Preparation

Preparing the body of someone who has passed away is one of the most important steps of a respectful and honourable send-off. The ideal end result is for your loved one to be presented in the most natural way to how you remember them.
From the moment anyone passes away, the process of decomposition will begin. Hospital staff, nursing home staff, carers and even family members can aid in the long term presentation of the deceased by ensuring the head is kept in an upright position (not leaning to one side) and by contacting us as early as possible so that we can uplift the body and bring them into our care and begin the embalming process if required.
Here at Heaven Funerals, your loved one will be kept in a safe, homely and peaceful space. Body preparation also includes hygienic cleaning, dressing, hair and makeup.
