Embalmer is a mortician who treats corpses with preservatives. His sole function as an embalmer is to so treat the body by means of chemical substance, embalmers' fluids, gases administered either externally or internally, or both, as to disinfect and preserve the body.
An embalmer is not necessarily an undertaker. An embalmer, as such, does not bury the dead; he does not take charge of funerals; he does not dress the body, procure the coffin or do the many other things that an undertaker does. [State ex rel. Kempinger v. Whyte, 177 Wis. 541, 545 (Wis. 1922)].
