Diary of a Resurrectionist, Thursday 20th February 1812

Thursday 20th.
Met and went to Pancress got 15 large & 1 small took them to Barthol w .

A considerable haul of 15 adults and 1 child; 18 subjects in total.

St Pancras was a strange burial ground, seperated from the burial ground of it’s very close neighbour St Giles by a mere wall; today, they are one open space, reduced in overall size by the reclamation of some of the land for the use of the railway/Eurostar.

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.
