The purpose of embalming is to ensure the sanitation and preservation during the lead up to the funeral. It can also ensure a more natural appearance of your loved one.

If the funeral is delayed for some reason, or if the deceased has to be transferred to another city or country, embalming is mandatory. The staff at Wairarapa Funeral Services can discuss your individual situation with you and help you make the right choice.

At all times the deceased will be treated with the utmost respect and dignity.
Embalming is a skilled process and should only be performed by trained practitioners who are members of the FDANZ and/or the NZ Embalmers Association.
