Massallah pertaining to Janazah

Question ID: 24790

Recently I attened a funeral and noticed 2 things that I never came across before. Please can you clarify these”
1. When I got to the funeral house, the body was still in the mortuary as he died in an accident. I was told that I could not read quraan or yasin as the ghusal was not performed on the body at that point.
2. the deceased was married twice and divorced both wives. Both the wives were present but where asked to leave as it was a sin that will be passed onto the deceased if they stayed on.

1) No correct - once you heard of the death, you could have started reading.
2) They would have stayed in the house not next to the body but in another room.
