Debt, death and discrimination

(This talk will be preceded by a short branch annual meeting)

While researching different crimes in the Newbury area in the nineteenth century, Ros Clow became aware of the very different severity of punishment, depending on whether the perpetrator was rich or poor. The talk covers murders, manslaughter, fraud, bankruptcy, baby farming, suicide.

Ros Clow is the history group co-ordinator of the Friends of Newtown Road Cemetery, and has been closely involved in researching the biographies of the people buried therein.

This is a face-to-face meeting. Booking is preferred but not required, and Covid security measures remain in place – for more info:  https://berksfhs.org/face-to-face-events-covid-security/
