Diary of a Resurrectionist, Monday 10th February 1812

Monday 10th
Met. Went to St. James’s. Got 9 large & 4 small, took them to Barthol’w.

A significant number raised – a total of thirteen; nine adults and four children. Taken to the usual store at St Bartholomew’s.

There is nothing to especially indicate which St James’s this might have been, but Isabella Basil Holmes suggests “the ground in the Hampstead Road belonging to St James’s Picadilly”.

My name is Kirsty Chilton. I am a Medical Historian working in London and relentlessly searching for the body snatchers of 18th and 19th century London. Currently, the content of this blog is a personal project to repost and comment on the diary of 19th century Resurrectionist Joseph Naples 200 years from the time it was written.
