What I have seen done in the past is that some religions such as orthodox catholic and some Asian traditions require that all the body parts be buried so as soon as the autopsy is finished it is sent to the embalmer processed and placed back in the body. I know that most undertakers do not like to do this and will charge extra. I also know that it pretty rare procedure and most morticians under 30 have never heard of it.

We do not offer any embalming services however I'll be eager to see the responses to this query.

Just curious about what other institutions may be doing about this... and
any information that you might have about what is considered "standard of
practice" with regard to this issue.
