Embalming is necessary to preserve the human remains, primarily for the purpose of viewing and as a health regulation. The State of Kansas, because of health reasons and legal concerns regulates the disposition of bodies.
If the family chooses and arrangements can be made, the remains may be buried within the district without embalming if it is in a reasonable amount of time and the body is permanently enclosed in a casket. Embalming is not required for a direct cremation. If the deceased died with an infectious disease, the body cannot be removed from this district without being properly embalmed, nor can a body be transported to another state without being embalmed.
No doubt about it, our embalmers set the standard. It takes skill, dedication and a reverence of the human body to be a good embalmer. You can be assured of the fact you will find these qualities in our embalmers at Dengel & Son Mortuary.
