There can be no greater endeavour than that of serving one's fellow human beings at a time of great need.

Welcome to The Embalming Academy

The William Purves Embalming Academy will strive to offer the highest standard of instruction, with an emphasis on practical embalming. The Academy aims to provide a state of the art learning environment in which its students can benefit from a vast knowledge of modern embalming techniques and modern equipment.


Due to social distancing we have closed the Embalming Academy and we are unsure when we will be in a position to re-open Please keep checking our website in 2021 as any updates will be posted on here. We receive many enquiries from all over the world from potential Students and are unable to hold a waiting list.
