A ressurrectionist at Margate - the Ben Crouch story.
















The Resurrectionists as they were known earnt their living through the trade in human body parts. The Anatomy act of 1831 ended the trade. One notorious resurrectionist had Margate connections and this research by Mick Twyman and Alf Beeching puts it into greater detail.
There is a mention of the Zion Chapel at the end of the article and I have attached a print fo Zion Chapel from a previous story for downloading.
