Death in Victorian times was something to be feared whilst at the same time it was treated with an unprecedented degree of observance and ceremony. Respect for the dead was a concept taken to heart by all who came into contact with its mysteries. This compelling book covers a variety of gruesome themes and events; from suicide and murder to mining deaths and the Dark lane Pit disaster. Death and Disaster in Victorian Telford makes compulsive reading; it adds a new dimension to the way death is viewed as well as a novel approach to the history of this part of Shropshire.
