I have been researching and writing about British murders for a great many years before and after the development of the internet. Of course no one case is ever the same – each one is distinctive. Murder Research is a unique investigation service established on-line in 2003. Over the years I have searched, discovered and sometimes written about many old British serious criminal cases covering the period 1750 to 1950.

If your enquiry generates news items, these can be sent to you by email in PDF format.
