UXBRIDGE Mortuary has been given a high-tech overhaul following a two-year £2.5m refurbishment and extension by Hillingdon Council. 

The newly-expanded centre in Kingston Lane, Hillingdon, includes the latest equipment and twice the previous storage capacity.

The expanded post-mortem area includes a ‘negative-pressure’ room which helps contain or stop the spread of infection, while storage capacity has been doubled.  

The building also has capacity to house a new training area.
