I have been a practical embalmer since 1991 and have cared for thousands of deceased people over the years. I have always practised to the highest standards, learning from every experience and evaluating each case ready for the next. I have advised many other embalmers on technical issues, presented lectures and written technical articles.
Quality rather than quantity, and nothing is too much trouble!
• Advanced decomposition, including extreme tissue gas
• Extreme Oedema
• Long-term preservation
• Tissue and bone donators
• Facial soft tissue loss due to animals, physical trauma and extreme burns
• Facial and cranial bone trauma
• Infectious TB, HIV, Hepatitis A, B and C
I have never received a deceased person into my care that I have not been able to make viewable for the family. Using my expertise I am able to provide the family with a more pleasant visitation and final image of their loved one.
I believe that this is very important for psychological wellbeing and healing during grieving. Images harboured from official identification or shocking discovery of the deceased can be very traumatic and need to be replaced by a more peaceful and pleasant vision which will allow fond memories to return. This can be achieved by providing an exceptional standard of embalming and restoration, and therefore encouraging viewing.
