More Description

Some of the city's most gruesome stories are unearthed in this compendium of facts and anecdotes addressing London's dead. From the famous and infamous to unsung heroes and victims, and from well-known resting places to undignified graves, a vast array of deaths is addressed. Stories include that of the Gordon Riots of 1780, during which Langdale's Distillery was stormed; as the rioters gorged themselves the liquor caught fire, burning their insides. The tragic, the preplanned, the absurd, and the bizarre are all covered in this startling history of the dead.
