Care and Preparation of Deceased
Except in certain special cases, the law does not require embalming. Embalming may be necessary however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as funeral with viewing. If you do not want embalming you usually have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require you to pay for it, such as direct cremation or immediate burial. South Dakota Law 20:45:02:07; Source 9 SDR effective 11/14/82 states that an un-embalmed body may be kept no longer than 24 hours from the time of death. After 24 hours, the body shall be refrigerated, embalmed, cremated, or buried in the ground.
Preparation for viewing
Included but not limited to, bathing, and/or dressing, and/or cosmetizing
