Embalming and Viewing Policy
According to the Texas Funeral Service Commission, Texas law does not require embalming. Embalming is done by permission of the family. Most common carriers will require a body to be embalmed prior to shipping. The laws of the destination country or state will apply. Because of the rapid deterioration of a body after death, Texas law requires that bodies held for over 24 hours or in transit must be embalmed, refrigerated, or encased in a leak and odor proof container.(Facts about Funerals updated 2001).
For a traditional arrangement, one day of visitation of an embalmed body in a casket is provided the day and evening prior to the funeral. Viewing of an un-embalmed body would be for identification purposes only. Extended viewing of an un-embalmed body is not possible.
