Last Saturday morning around 8.30am, I was driving southbound along London Road when I couldn’t believe my eyes. At the undertaker’s just past Sainsbury’s, they were carrying a stretcher with a body on it, draped in a purple cover, through the front door of their office in full view of the passing public on foot and in vehicles.
I appreciate conditions probably stopped the undertakers from carrying out this task behind the closed gates of their premises, but to do it in the open like that, I think showed a total disregard to the passing public (especially those like myself with children present), and disrespect to the deceased.
If a screen couldn’t have been set up, surely they could have waited until conditions improved a little later? It was a very undignified way to go!
