Diary of a Resurrectionist, Wednesday 12th February 1812

Wednesday 12th
Went to Look out, Met at night, went to St. Olives. Got 2 adults and 1 Do Bermondsey, Took them to St. Thomas’s.

3 bodies raised.

St Olives is St Olave’s on Tooley Street. The parish is very close to St Thomas’s and the two merged in the middle of the 19th century. It’s burial ground was positioned on the riverbank.
