Embalming or hygienic treatment arrests the inevitable deterioration after death. It removes some of the physical effects and restores a person’s truer appearance. It is done to allow you and your family to remember the person as they were in life. You may choose this treatment because you want to see your loved one “at peace” or because you would like more time to say goodbye.
Hygienic treatment also offers some health protection for a person coming into close contact with someone who has died from certain conditions. All hygienic treatment work at William Purves is carried out by our own highly qualified team of professionals.
