    Hi Howard,

    I have my doubts about Hemel Hempstead having links to JTR, but have just ordered a copy. Let's hope it has some interesting information

      I wonder if he mentions Digswell, near Welwyn, where it seems John McCarthy may have lived as a child.

        Hi Gary,

        Once I receive the book I will look out for that.

              Hi Gary,

              The book arrived today and I am afraid there is no mention of Digswell, the nearest reference to Welwyn is Ayot St. Lawrence where George Bernard Shaw once lived.

              This slim volume [55 printed pages] has little to offer that is not already known. Hemel Hempstead gets but one mention, that of Barnaby and Burgo, the bloodhounds who were exercised there. [actually on Boxmoor Common but it does not tell us that].

              The nearest mention close to Hemel Hempstead is that of Detective Constable Daniel Halse who was baptised in Bovingdon and grew up in Abbots Langley, both villages being about three miles from Hemel Hempstead.

              Not a book for the serious Ripper researcher I am afraid.
