When you touch a cold dead body directly with out gloves, Ghusl of that touching becomes obligatory on you. If you can not perform Ghusl, then Tayammum becomes obligatory on you.

It is Mustahab (recommended) to wipe on the tummy of the dead body twice, one with first Ghusl with Sidr and second with the second Ghusl with Kafour except the dead woman if she was pregnant then it becomes Makrouh (disliked) to wipe on her tummy during Ghusl.

If they are not sure that the dead body was given Ghusl of Mayyit, they should preform Ghusl of touching the dead body (Ghusl of Mass-e- Mayyit) which is like any other Ghusl.

Wassalam.
