The practice and professional identity of those who within hospital mortuaries, anatomical pathology technologists (APTs), is largely invisible to the extent that the work and setting in which they work is absent in literature. Medical sociological work has to date been more focused on the experience of illness and dying than what happens after death.

This report details the findings of a case study of one hospital mortuary and the APTs who worked there.
