There was one more large room in the mortuary, which, we discovered, was where
the bodies of the patients were kept.
Cane Hill at its height could house 2000 patients. Why they needed storage space for
15 bodies was a little disturbing (as each of these five doors revealed three stacks).
"On your Cane Hill thread, you mentioned/questioned the need for a
mortuary that could accommodate 15 people at once. I was trolling through another site
that has some information on Cane Hill, (Abandoned Britain)
and I noticed that the author had published an entry from the mortuary log (The last picture on the web page)."
"As you can see, in 1959, the attrition rate at Cane Hill was close to 1 death
every day. Given an Autopsy would have taken a day (maybe longer) to complete, I would have
guessed that 15 places in the mortuary would not have been over the top. Especially, as I would
have guessed that pre WWII, when much life sustainable medicine was yet to be developed, the
death rate would only have been higher." - John Fern
