Many of our member firm funeral homes provide brochures which discuss funeral laws and regulations. Our purpose is to answer general questions about funerals. Please note that many of our responses are given according to NC Law. Other states and countries may have different regulations.

No, NC does not require by law that a deceased human body be embalmed. However, circumstances may arise that will require embalming such as funeral home policies for public viewing and delayed interment. Although, it may not be law, some funeral homes have policies about holding un-embalmed bodies for an extensive time period.
