Public mortuary

Croydon public mortuary is used for the reception and storage of bodies of those who have died in the borough.

How the mortuary is run

The service is run under the jurisdiction of HM Coroner and we handle deaths that have been referred to the coroner or where a death certificate cannot be issued.

We are committed to providing a professional, dignified, caring and sympathetic service. Our mortuary officers are highly qualified and experienced anatomical pathology technicians.

Opening hours

Monday to Friday, 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm

Appointments to view must be made through the Coroner's office on 020 8313 1883.

The mortuary is opened for emergencies and is an integral part of Croydon's emergency services.
