This absorbing collection of some of the foulest deeds from Rotherham's past promises to interest anyone who is unaware of this forgotten part of the town's character. With stories ranging from child murders to brutal stabbings, the misdemeanours that are revealed promise to shock and fascinate in equal measure. While some of these felonies are unjustifiable, much of Rotherham's crime was the result of the desperate poverty that many of the area's inhabitants experienced. Illustrated with both rare images and archive reports, this volume shows just how difficult life in Victorian England was for those who had nowhere else to turn. Written by local author Margaret Drinkall, a true crime expert, this book tackles a subject that many would prefer to ignore, but which remains an important part of Rotherham's history.

Britain has its fair share of unsolved murders. Crimes that have both fascinated and horrified in equal measure, with many as baffling today as they were when the stories first hit the headlines in the national press. Spanning 100 years between 1857-1957, this book re-examines thirteen of these murder cases and retells the stories that have endured and confounded both police and law courts alike. Each chapter provides an account of the circumstances surrounding the killing, of the people caught up in the subsequent investigation and the impact it had on some of their lives. It also explores the question of guilt and to whom it should, or should not, be attached. Each of these murders poses an undeniable truth; no-one was ever proven to have committed the killing despite, in some cases, accusing fingers being pointed, arrests being made and show trials taking place. Consequently, notoriety, deserved or otherwise, was often attached to both victim and accused. But was it ever merited? From the questionable court case surrounding Scotland’s now famous Madeleine Smith, and the failed police investigation into Bradford’s Jack the Ripper case of 1888, to the mysterious deaths of Caroline Luard and Florence Nightingale Shore at the start of the twentieth century, this book disturbs the dust, sifts the facts and poses the questions that mattered at the time of each murder. Did Harold Greenwood poison his wife in Kidwelly? Who was responsible for the Ripper-like killing of Emily Dimmock and Rose Harsent? Why did Evelyn Foster die on the moor near Otterburn in what became known as the Blazing car murder and who strangled Ann Noblett to death in 1957? These are just some of the cases examined and the stories behind them. Each and every one, no matter how appalling the crime, still deserving of justice.

However, using archive material, newspaper reports, and the remaining Guardians' minutes from 1890, this book reveals the story of this feared local institution. Famously contentious, the Sheffield Board of Guardians often went against the wishes of the Local Government Board, and even of their own workhouse staff. Containing the full and fascinating histories of Sheffield's three workhouses (as well as the workhouse school and the attached farm), this book will captivate residents and visitors alike.
