Any modern mortuary offers a range of standard for all services, provided free of charge, and a set of actions and procedures undertaken at the request of the relatives of the deceased for an additional fee.
Ritual service “Requiem” offers following types of services:
- The preservation of the body in the morgue ( this service is especially relevant in the hot season, in a situation when the body needs medical autopsy when loved ones do not want or cannot store the body of the deceased at home). In some cases, conservation of bodies in the morgue may be in the form of embalming for an indefinite period.
- Sanitary arrangements (usually involves the washing of the body, the clothing of the deceased in the funeral clothes and basic beauty treatments). The more cosmetic procedures the deceased require, the higher the cost of services of the morgue are.
- Laying the body in the coffin.
- Carrying the coffin with the body and setting it in the hearse.
