Embalming

I offer a comprehensive embalming service. The embalming process involves the use of special fluids to restore a natural appearance.

The embalming process is carried out in a special room like this one. The process takes about two hours but may take longer if restoration is necessary.

I carry out all the embalming myself. I studied embalming at Doggarts College of Funeral Directing and Embalming in Northern Ireland and obtained the British Institute of Embalmers Degree. I studied Restorative Art in the International College of Mortuary Science, Lige, Belgium, where I received a Masters Degree

in Restorative Art. I received a Diploma in Cosmetology in Meredith International College, London, and a Diploma in Hairdressing in Skolar’s College, Limerick in Ireland.

I ensure that the deceased person is presented for viewing looking as natural as possible. The sight of their loved one looking at peace without any sign of distress is a considerable help in the grieving process and it is the hallmark of a good Funeral Director.
