"My grandfather had died late in ..."

About: Musgrove Park Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

My grandfather had died late in the day and we were advised to wait until the following day before seeing him. Its never nice dealing with death but the morgue staff were wonderful,.They advised before we entered there was a minor problem with the laying of the body.But even with the problems the staff had gone to a great deal of detail in making sure he looked the best he could have.We took our young daughter (11) to visit too and due to the care taken with our grandfathers body she now even today remembers the visit with a positive attitude and is glad she saw him.So thank you again to the staff at the morgue who probably don't get many thanks.

Thank you
