The British Institute of Embalmers, (BIE) was founded in 1927 by a group of 15 Funeral Directors who recognized the need for a separate organisation for the professional embalmer.
Our International Embalmer is a full member of the BIE and as such you can be sure of the best possible embalming.
Embalming can be thought of as preservation and restoration of dignity of the Deceased.
It does not stop the deterioration of the deceased but slows it down. This is a factor that should be considered during the repatriation. Our staff are always on hand to give a professional opinion as to any concerns you may have.
The Institute is committed to supporting and protecting the status, character and interest of persons professing or practising the art and science of embalming. It exists to promote the efficient tuition of persons seeking to study and practise embalming and for encouraging members to maintain their proficiency and observing best practice by providing educational lectures, conferences and other forums for its members.
The Institute will consider all questions affecting the interests of persons engaged in embalming, sanitation, and disposal of the deceased, and to initiate and watch over, and, if thought desirable, to petition the government, or promote deputation’s in relation to any public measure affecting any matters aforesaid, and to promote improvements in the principles and administration of the law relating to the care of the deceased.
Each member of the Institute takes very seriously the sacred trust that exists between them and the next of kin who have entrusted the care of their deceased family member to them.
