Authorization for Embalming
Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with a viewing. If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial.
The undersigned individual(s) anticipates choosing a funeral arrangement that includes viewing and therefore grants permission for the above named funeral establishment to embalm the above named deceased person.
