The TikTok video, which has gone viral, has received more than 147K views and 19K likes. "It felt especially chilling to see the porcelain embalming table in the center of the room knowing how many deceased individuals once laid upon it. Additionally, a cabinet in the room contained an assortment of items used in preparing the bodies for viewing," Gaby, 25, told NeedToKnowOnline. "This included bottles of embalming fluid, makeup for the bodies, clothing, and even eye caps which are used to keep the eyes of the deceased closed."

Gaby added, "We started our exploration by making our way through the funeral parlour and chapel where services for the deceased would be held. Interestingly, the seats were still arranged and set up to face a display casket at the front of the room."

Gaby said, "I had never seen an abandoned casket before and this one looked particularly eerie, with a thick coating of dust and the top slightly ajar enough just to peer inside." Additionally, the two discovered a tiny flat that was located above the funeral house.

Gaby suspects the funeral home director formerly owned the once-loved house because it was crammed with personal items like clothing, photos, and trinkets. She said, "While sifting through the upstairs apartment we found what could very likely be the funeral director's walker in their kitchen, sitting in silence as a reminder of their past presence."

"I felt pure excitement while looking around this location," Gaby said. "Exploring this funeral home was something I had really been looking forward to for a very long time. I was quickly mesmerized by all the supplies left behind, in particular the embalming fluids and tools left in the embalming room."

Several videos of her discoveries, including one showing the embalming bucket swinging back and forth, can be seen in one video. Gaby said, "I was most surprised by the fact that the embalming room was still intact and contained an embalming table, as many abandoned funeral homes have their embalming tables removed prior to abandonment."

"It was also unexpected that the table was made of porcelain since this is typically only seen in more dated funeral homes," Gaby said.
