Victorian Embalming

In 19th century America, death often happened at home. A doctor would attend to ensure actual death had occurred. The undertaker, if needed, would then quickly remove the decomposing remains for burial elsewhere. In the 1850s, surgeon Thomas Holmes developed a (supposedly) nontoxic embalming fluid that revolutionized Victorian mortuary customs.

With Holmes’ new concoctions, previously rare embalming could now take place in the home. With a portable kit and folding table, morticians could drain a body’s blood and replace it with the necessary chemicals — all in the family’s kitchen. A home wake would celebrate the life lost, and visitors could pay their respects to the now-preserved body.
