Announcing the Launch of Grave Matters


I don’t like to brag (okay, I do) but I know an amazing number of talented people. One of them is Chris Skaife, Yeoman Warder (Beefeater) and Ravenmaster at the Tower of London.  Together, he and I have launched a new website which will focuses primarily on the history of crime and punishment; and what happened to criminals before, during and after execution. We’ve got a lot of gruesome things planned for the site, so please do check it out if you are interested. Our first post is on ‘5 Shocking Facts from the Scaffold’ – you won’t believe some of the stories we’ve dug up!

Click Grave Matters to visit the website. And make sure you “like” our page on Facebook to keep up-to-date on the latest articles!

      You can subscribe to the mailing list but right now, WIX (the platform I’m using) doesn’t have an RSS feed app. They are working on it though and it should be up and running soon!
