Google is telling me that open casket funerals are not common in the UK. So, if I have a character who is not making the funeral arrangements herself but who really wants to see the body of a dead loved one, how can that be arranged? (For the record, the character in question is about thirteen years old. Her parents are fine with her seeing the body, but they don't necessarily want to see it themselves.) If the dead person is going to be cremated, would there be a chance for loved ones to see the body before the cremation?

I'm not sure if this changes anything, but for the record, the death took place in Scotland and funeral/burial arrangements are being made in Scotland.
