Alarm in Durham !

“The bellman of Durham created much alarm among a certain portion of the female inhabitants last Monday night, by cautioning them to keep their children within doors in the evening, as it was understood that some resurrection men were going about stealing the living! The story is surely very ridiculous, and the object of the propagator must be to make light of the grave subject!”
The Morning Post – 10 February 1824
