Our Story 'The Embalmers'

Death is a daily occurrence for Kelly and Jen, embalmers in one of Glasgow's busiest funeral services. Since the pandemic hit, they've been working non-stop, but the enthusiasm and passion for their job has never once wavered. Narrated by Nalini Chetty, 'The Embalmers' takes a peek into the oft hidden world of embalming bodies with no holds barred. From straightforward open-casket cases to complicated post-mortems, there is nothing Kelly and Jen haven't seen or taken in their stride in their continued quest to give the deceased back their dignity.
