Great Yarmouth History

Unsolved Historical Murders

By Nicola Moore

I am currently researching historical murders, which at the time they were committed baffled the limited knowledge of the police and have never been resolved.
I have researched: Mrs Candler, Mary Bennett, Dora May Gray, Charlotte Yaxley, Elizabeth Hannah and some others from the eighteenth century. Although some of these have been resolved, in all instances the cases can be argued against.
I am interested in being contacted by anyone who feel they can contribute to my research. I am also looking for old photographs of Great Yarmouth, which have not been in the public domain before.
If you are interested in my work so far, or feel you may be able to add some information, please feel free to contact me.

Hi Nicola, I'm trying to find out any information about Dora May Grays murder, as it is believed that she is related to our family.

Hi, I'm related to Samuel Yarham and Charlotte Yaxley (John Yaxley) is my direct ancestor. I would be interested in any information you have on them, I also may have some information that might be of interest to you.
