Flexibility of an embalmed corpse

I'm planning a story in a fantasy world with Victorian era steampunk technology levels, and one of the locations is a city-state ruled by necromancers. All the unkilled labour is done by zombies, and to increase their "lifespan" (and for hygiene issues), they're all embalmed before being animated. I've tried searching "embalming methods", "embalming side-effects", and "how flexible is an embalmed corpse", but can't find any information on whether an embalmed corpse would be able to move its joints and muscles. Can anyone help?
