Care of the Body and Mortuary Management


An Introductory Course

A Unique Course with Angie McLachlan

2 days

For just 8 students, this practical hands-on course by the award winning Angie McLachlan and Green Fuse has to be the nearest to working with a body you can get, without an actual body.

Angie built Ichabod, fully articulated to give you a real experience of body care! With our focus on how to look after the dead with care and attention, respect and ritual, you accompany Ichabod on his journey from the point of death to his final resting place.

Good practice in caring for the body will help you prepare the body in the most comfortable and natural way for visiting and vigil by the families, giving them an experience of comfort, calm and peace and minimising any fears.

“I came to Green Fuse with no experience of running a business or in the funeral industry. They gave me the knowledge and confidence to set up a successful funeral home which had now been running for nearly 2 years and has helped over 100 families plan lovely funerals. We have 5 star ratings and have had nothing but positivity from the families who we serve." Hannah Vaughan. Signature Funerals

Confidence inspiring

This is a special course where Angie teaches the main tasks you will need to practice when caring for the dead.

It is a course designed to help you gain confidence and practical skills in managing and repairing damaged tissue, cosmetic work, preparing the body for viewing and working safely in the mortuary environment.

Taking place in our funeral home, we have devised the course to give you the best possible knowledge of how to safely manage a great many mortuary situations, with lots of information on health and safety issues.

Please note: this is not an embalming course.
