(Fatwa: 426/515/L=05/1437)

It is not necessary for a person who is giving ghusl to dead body to take a bath after it. However it is mustahab for him to take bath.
قال فى الدر المختار : وندب لمجنون أفاق .... أو غسل ميتاً (درمختار) وفى الشامى: قوله أو غسل ميتاً للخروج من الخلاف كما فى الفتح . (شامى: 1، 310-311)
