There is no specific amount required in Shari'ah to perform the Ghusl of the deceased. There should be a sufficient amount, that is all. There is no need for anybody else standing around watching.

Feeding arrangements for those that have come from far for the Janaazah should not be made by the family of the deceased. Instead, close relatives and friends should all participate in helping out for this. Great care should be taken so that there is no mixing of the two genders.
