**Summary:**The set ${\cal LR}(H)$ of closed linear relations on a separable Hilbert space $H$ (i.e. the set of all closed linear subspaces of $H \oplus H$ of infinite di\-mension and codimension) contains the set ${\cal G}(H)$ of the graphs of all closed densely defined linear operators on $H$. Equipped with the ``gap" metric $g$, ${\cal LR}(H)$ is a complete metric space. In this paper we establish a certain number of properties of ${\cal LR}(H)$ and we caracterize the closure of ${\cal G}(H)$ in ${\cal LR}(H)$, providing thus a completion of the set ${\cal C}(H)$ of all closed densely defined linear operators on $H$.
