So, Addenbrookes Hospital is having an Open Day on the 10th May, and in the Main Reception area there is a big sign up listing the attractions available on the big day.

Amongst them is 'Visit the Mortuary'

It almost makes me wish that I wasn't planning on going back to Norfolk that weekend...

I can see dead people?

You know it'll be empty of actual bodies, right?
I only say that because it's the thought I'd use to console myself.

Oh, and because of that, they'll notice if you try to stuff another one in there, to get it out of the way.

I'd prefer it if there were bodies there to be honest. It is supposed to have them after all.

I'm not quite at the stage where I'm wanting to add more though, so don't worry. :-)

*shrugs* the crematorium my Grandad was cremated in had an open day (a long time before he died) and the whole family did a tour...

Demythologising death is a Good Thing in my book

Oh I agree, absolutely.

Although I think that a morgue would be very different to a crematorium as it's far more functional; it's all about the dead, whereas a crematorium's main purpose is dealing with those still alive, the disposal of the dead is almost secondary.

[livejournal.com profile] vickybird pointed out to me that it would be good research as well, so I'm doubly disappointed to not be around tomorrow.

Norfolk is where people go to die. Console yourself with that. (From a fellow Norfolker).

I'll assume that you're dead then. :-)
