Ashbrook Funeral Services Provides an Experienced and Processional Embalming Service
The care and presentation of the deceased is one of the most important tasks here at Ashbrook Funeral Services. We deeply believe that embalming goes a long way to not only preserving the dignity of the deceased but that it also helps the family to grieve by seeing their loved one look like themselves. Modern embalming ensures that your loved one will appear in a peaceful, almost sleep-like state, for the viewing.
Embalming is the sanitation and hygienic preservation of the body. This prevents the spread of bacteria and reduces the speed of deterioration giving the body a more natural appearance. Embalming is not a necessary step in the funeral process. However, with the Irish tradition of wakes, we highly recommend availing of an embalming service as it allows for a more dignified presentation to loved ones, family and friends. For many, this final viewing is deeply important and it is our goal for loved ones to view the deceased with dignity and respect.
At Ashbrook Funeral Services we have a wealth of embalming experience. Yvonne trained and worked as an embalmer for many years, and now she personally oversees the entire embalming process here at Ashbrook Funeral Services.
