Una carnicería es también una terrible matanza. La idea más similar en inglés yo creo que es slaughter.

And something else: In England people speak of minced meat, and in Spain we say carne picada.

No, that's carne molida.

Minced meat it's just bits of meat, maybe little squares but not necessarily
