Death and Disaster in Victorian Telford

Availability: In stock

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.
