How Can You Find a Qualified Embalmer?

Access Our International Embalming Network

Embalmers play an integral role in the funeral and burial process. When your funeral home is working with a family whose loved one died away from home, you may be tasked with finding a qualified embalming service provider nearby to prepare the deceased for transport. It can be incredibly difficult to assess embalmers without prior knowledge of their qualifications and experience. This is why National Mortuary Shipping & Cremation is proud to connect funeral homes with our global network of embalming providers. We understand how critical finding the right service provider is, and we thoroughly vet our network for the proper qualifications.

Each embalming provider in our network must adhere to the following:

They must be state licensed. Becoming an embalmer most often requires secondary education and training. In the United States, embalmers must also be licensed according to the requirements for their state, which can vary. The NFDA is a great resource for licensing requirements.

They must have significant experience in the embalming process. Embalming requires skill, practice, and experience in order to deliver services in a timely and highly accurate manner.

They must adhere to the highest standards of work. We accept nothing less than the best quality of work for our clients. If there are issues we communicate this with the embalmer.

They need to prepare detailed embalming reports. These reports offer a specific account of the professional embalming services provided.

They must maintain open communication with NMS. We know that you have a responsibility to keep the families you serve informed at each step of the process.

They must stay up-to-date on embalming techniques. It is essential that embalmers participate in continued education to remain current with the latest and most advanced embalming techniques.
