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 viewing.
If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement which does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial.
Embalming for Oliver & Eggleston are done at Oliver and Eggleston Funeral Establishment in Farmville.
If you selected a funeral that may require embalming, such as a funeral with viewing, you may have to pay for embalming. You do not have to pay for embalming that you did not approve if you selected arrangements such as direct cremation or immediate burial. If we charged for embalming, we will explain why below.
