Once a person is dead, the body of the diseased person has to be preserved for various reasons like autopsy, identification or respectful burial or cremation. The body can be preserved in different ways like embalming, Mummification, and freezing. Usually, dead bodies are preserved in Morgue in Mortuary room when a body id under control of hospitals or police for legal clearance.
