Temporary Mortuaries

Temporary Mortuaries

Full Turnkey Solution

Fews have been the leading supplier of temporary mortuaries in the past in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. We also supply mortuary trays and racking. We are able to support hospitals and the medical services by providing marquees and tents when additional hospital beds, temporary mortuaries and the associated services are required.

Thanks to our extensive experience and logistics team, our premium marquees can be delivered at speed and rapidly installed at almost any location. Our marquees are ideal for temporary hospitals, temporary medical centres, triage rooms or any other kind of temporary medical facility.

We are now able to offer for our marquees and temporary structures the insulation properties to deliver the required temperature control in all ambient conditions through a quick and easy to install bespoke lining. This is a Keder fed multifoil reflective lining with 21 layer insulation, providing a near airtight seal.

At Fews, we understand the sensitivity of project relating to temporary mortuaries and the need to ensure required conditions are maintained, potentially over long periods.

Our full turnkey service for temporary mortuaries includes design and erection of the temporary building structure, power, and high-performance refrigeration systems. We manage all logistics to ensure rapid deployment anywhere in the UK.

In addition, we offer:

  • Insulated floors, walls, ceilings and doors

We use specialist enhanced PVC, insulated sandwich slabs, aluminium profiles and fire galvanised steel connection and assembly components to ensure we provide safe, durable, resistant structures.

Our Accreditations

Risk: What our Health and Safety means for you

Constructing temporary structures on operational sites requires a skilled workforce with specific qualifications. We provide a tailored service to such sites to make sure that all construction works are isolated and the public is safe. It is of critical importance that we reduce the risk of injury to the lowest possible levels to minimise your liability and protect all stakeholders.  You can trust us, and this is why:

Compliance & Accreditations

Maintaining high professional standards is fundamental to the Fews approach. We have many health and safety, process and environmental accreditations including CHAS Elite, SafeContractor, Constructionline Silver, ISO9001 and ISO14001.

DBS Checked Staff

All personnel involved in the construction process must undergo Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks to ensure a safe and secure working environment when working on projects in the education sector.

Flexible Delivery Schedule

The ability to deliver materials outside of hours is essential to minimise disruptions to the ongoing operational activities and reducing risk in busy areas. This requires coordination and planning to ensure a seamless construction process.


Visibility of Staff and Vehicles

All our site staff wear branded hi-viz clothing and all of our vehicles are clearly branded for easy identification to ensure the safety of our staff and others when onsite.

Health and Safety

There are a number of essential accreditations that are required to work in any environment.  Fews also operate on numerous nuclear sites which means a much higher level of training and accreditation.  There is more information on our accreditations and training programmes.
