It is for us the family and friends of the deceased to thank the university for carrying out their research and learning in such a caring manner, and the Thanksgiving Ceremony was symbiotic and cathartic and very much appreciated.

"Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon. We're really proud of our mum for helping you with your valuble work"

"Thank you for a wonderful afternoon of celebration and for looking after my mum; I now know she is in very good hands. Thanks also for your dedidication to your medical careers"

The commitment of staff to the dignity of the deceased in their care, and the preservation of the integrity and traceability of anatomical specimens, was apparent throughout the inspection.
