OK, I am the same person who asked the tour guide at Versailles, "There are no bathrooms in Versailles where did they go to the bathroom?"  His reply, " They were pissing everywhere."  LOL I am always worried about the basics!  

So are mortuaries getting ready for all the dead?    Who would know this one?

I would.  One of the preparation steps that state governments undertake is for mortuary services.   These are called DMORT (Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team).

So if I die in the hospital and I have told them to Contact a specific cemetery that has a mortuary where I have a spot will the hospital call them to come get my body?  My son will also be contacting my cemetery to tell them where my body is.  So will that work?

It might, it depends upon the level of mortalities and emergency status.   If I were you, I'd call a local mortician and ask those questions.
