No, in Florida embalming is not required by law. However, embalming is required if the family has selected a funeral service with a public wake or viewing. Embalming is also required if the deceased is to be transporting from one state to another by common carrier. For example, if an individual passes away in Florida and is to be transported by airplane to Ohio for burial, embalming would be required. more

Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. However, embalming will be necessary if you select certain funeral arrangements such as viewing during visitation. If the body is transported out of state, some states require embalming or a special sealed container. If you do not want embalming, you have the right to choose an arrangement that would not require it such as closed casket services, immediate burial or cremation prior to your services. more

No, embalming is required by law only in rare circumstances. But most funeral homes do not allow public viewing without embalming. In many instances we are able to offer families the opportunity for a private viewing prior to Funeral with minimal preparation not involving embalming. Back to Top 2. more

No. West Virginia law does not require embalming at any time. Sometimes it is a matter of practical necessity to embalm a body if there will be an open casket public viewing. If you do not want embalming, you have the right to select an alternative arrangement such as immediate burial or direct cremation.

No. Most states, however, require embalming when death is caused by a reportable contagious disease or when a deceased is to be transported from one state to another by common carrier, or if final disposition is not to be made within a prescribed number of hours. more
