Death is something that we all dread. However, upon demise, the final journey of the dead start at the funeral home/morgue. The kin of the dead starts by identifying the final home for their loved one.
Criteria for selecting a funeral home/morgue
- Quality of service
- Accessibility to the burial site. A morgue along the road leading to the burial place is preferable
- Other services such as a chapel, coffins and transport
- Body viewing
Why does a morgue matter
Funeral home offers services according to the request of the deceased family or according to the will of the dead.
When a body is admitted to the morgue it is preserved by removing blood so as to accommodate the preservative. The intestinal organs are also removed to reduce the rate of body decomposition. In some instances, a postmortem is done to ascertain the cause of death before preservation.
To maintain the natural state of the body and especially the face and the arm, some cosmetic techniques are done on the body. This helps the mourners to have a natural view during the body viewing.
However, some morgues allow for body viewing before the body collection/ burial date. This is sometimes referred to as body visitation.
Additionally, the funeral home helps the believed family in documenting the final journey of their loved one. The facility will issue documents such as a burial permit among others.
