The Poplar public mortuary is used for the reception and storage of bodies of people who have died in Emena and its environs.
The mortuary handles deaths that have been referred to the coroner or deaths where a death certificate cannot be issued.
The mortuary is opened for emergencies and is an integral part of our emergency services.
Mortuary staff are sensitive to the needs of relatives and friends of the deceased held there, and they can arrange viewings of the deceased if this is requested. The mortuary also provides information and advice as required.
