The Buckley Boys and the Whitechapel Murders by Jonathan Tye

Welcome to The Whitechapel Society

The Whitechapel Society is a long-established historical society, originally set up to study the murders of Jack the Ripper and to shine a light on the conditions under which the victims lived.
The Society has grown over the years to include experts in many aspects of Victorian and Edwardian East End life. Members past and present have produced some of the most respected books and papers on East End crime ever written, including Spring-heeled Jack, Jack the Ripper, the Kray twins and many more.
