I find many ‘Dead Ends’ during my research. Mere mentions of a body snatching attempt that quite often leads to nothing. I share them because otherwise they will be forgotten. They are intended to be just that, mere snippets of the past.
BODY-SNATCHING – On Sunday night last, in St Mary’s church yard, Stockport, the grave of a newly interred corpse was desecrated, and its inmate (a young woman) carried off, without the prospect of a discovery of the inhuman wretches who perpetrated the act.
