THESE eerie images show the inside of an abandoned funeral home where the caskets and ashes were left behind.

The creepy shots were taken in the empty building in Ontario, Canada several years after the family-run business had closed.

Taken by photographer Freaktography the images show urns with unclaimed cremated remains and the makeup used on the dead bodies.

Body bags and a guide to embalming where left in the room where the deceased came to be preserved.

In one coffin a crucifix was left behind on a pillow while the hallway into the funeral home is cluttered with old trolleys.

The parlour’s chapel has been left intact with a piano and the Last Post trumpet abandoned close by.

Photographer Freaktography said: “This location closed sometime between 2010 and 2015 when the owner decided it was time to retire.

“The building is in fairly good condition with only some damage to ceiling tiles and possibly a leaky roof.

“I was very surprised to find how much had been left behind.

“I had explored another old funeral home in 2016 and there was literally nothing left behind whatsoever.

“However, this funeral home was different as I was greeted by multiple caskets immediately upon walking in.

“It seemed as though not much had been touched, moved or changed and there was zero vandalism or signs of squatting.

“The funeral home had one large visitation room and a smaller sitting room plus a very large chapel with wooden pews, a beautiful stained glass window and a shiny black grand piano.

“The offices, a consulting room and casket/urn sales were upstairs.

“I found three more regular sized caskets, a small child’s casket and many urns, two of which seemed to contain the unclaimed cremated remains of two deceased people.

“Back down on the main floor in the garage was the embalming room. This was one small room with a gurney, some other equipment, embalming machines, trocars, body bags and more.  It as certainly an eerie room to be in.”
