Birmingham: Second City Executions & the Coffin Works
6th June @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This talk looks at some events where people met their end with the help of a hangman’s noose in Birmingham over a period of 200 years. This ties in (so to speak) with a few of the Birmingham Conservation Trust higher profile projects, including the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries, against a background of some well-known people who made their final journey accompanied by products from the Coffin Works. The talk concludes with a “Virtual Tour” of the Coffin Works.
Speakers: David and Pam Humphries
