Former Mortuary, Old Saltburn


The mortuary in Old Saltburn was built in 1881 to house bodies which were regularly washed up on the beach at that time.[1] It was once part of a group of three buildings comprising of the mortuary, a lifeboat house and rocket brigade house - the other two buildings were demolished during road improvement works to widen Saltburn Road. The old mortuary is a Grade II listed building on the National Heritage List for England.
