“This video shows the procedure for six women to move a 6’2” man’s (dead) body across a room and through a doorway, carrying him on a large sheet.

“This video shows the procedure for washing the hair and face, as well as cleaning the teeth and mouth.”
“This video shows the procedure for washing the whole body (legs, arms and trunk) — as well as rolling the body on its side to be able to wash the back.”
“This video shows the procedure for dressing the body (in this case, with pants and shirt) — as well as how to set the eyes and mouth so that they remain shut.”
“Option 1: Moving the body into the casket
This part of the video shows the procedure to move the body into the casket — using the same simple single-sheet technique as in Part 1 (Moving the Body).
Option 2: Shrouding the body
This part of the video shows the procedure to shroud the body in the simplest form of shroud — using a large (queen or king sized) sheet and 4 ties.
There are 6 shroud patterns (2 unsewn ones, including the one demonstrated here, and 4 different sewn ones) — with both written and graphic instructions, and approved for use in ‘green burials’ — that are available on CINDEA’s ‘Post-death Care and Home Funerals page under the ‘Shroud Patterns’ section.”
Very interesting and educational.
