What is the Average Annual Salary of an Embalmer?

  I was wondering if you knew the average yearly salary that an embalmer recieves, say in a large city. Also, how many bodies can an embalmer embalm in one day's work?

The answer to the question is dependent on case volume. A funeral home
serving 100 families a year would support a salary of 30K. A funeral home
serving 1000 families would support a 95-110K salary for one person. Split
that up for multiple embalmers at the location serving the higher volume. -- David R. Shirley
