A bit of obscure history...

Would a morgue in London during the 1880's still be located in a hospital? I know this is a bit of an odd question but before I write about what it is I'm writing I'd like to know for sure what I'm writing is accurate and I'm having some trouble locating this particular information. Anyone have a clue?

    It totally does! I'm writing a side story that is happening at the same time as the Ripper Jack murders in Whitechappel but from everything that I've been reading, this kind of information on the time period is not there.

    I recently saw a tv drama set in about that time in Whitechappel, I think it was calld Ripper Streets. It was not about J-the-R, but set in the same time. In it, post mortems were carried out, mainly, in an old, converted police cell.
