Why is it being closed down ? maybe the facilities are outdated... seems a good solid facility to be updated and to keep it as a functioning facility.

The consent form for a PM is now five times as long as that for an operation (on the living ). The plan is for all Glasgow PMs to be carried out at the Southern from the begining of May. The City Mortuary will probably transfer shortly after that.

Maybe a home for Robert Pool's Glaswegiana?
