Synopsis

One way or another, we all fascinated by crime. Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths Around Huddersfield delves into our local hisotry, revealing a variety of cases from aspects of everyday life. Find out how Jeremiah Wharam reacted to being called 'Old Shoddy'; or why Rachel Crossley was thrown down a pit shaft and why william Duke should have stayed in Hull. Marsh Roebuck, John Herbert Cooke, John Furness and James Henry Stepnehson were called childern: young lives suddenly and prematurely ended, and two killers placed at the mercy of the Victorian judicial system. All the cases discussed here reflect changes in social history, the influence of alcohol, the prevalence of violent crimes (especially involving knives), differing attitudes to crime and the treatment of criminals over the past two hundred years; but they also show the remarkable similarity between crimes committed during that times and those in the newspapers of today.
