Answered by Ustadh Salman Younas
Question: Can a menstruating woman perform ghusl on the deceased in the Hanafi school?
Answer: wa `alaykum assalam
It is permissible for a menstruating woman to perform a ritual-bath for the deceased.
The consideration that needs to be taken into account is the permissibility of the woman performing the ritual-bath to look at the deceased being washed.
If it is not permissible for her to look at the deceased then it would not be permissible for her to bathe that person. If it is permissible for her to look at the deceased, such as if the deceased was her husband, then it would be permitted for her to bathe that person.
