Dissecting the Workhouse Dead

This talk will explain the terrible fear of the pauper funeral, its historical roots, and its long shadow into our own times.


Dr Ruth Richardson is an award-winning historian with a strong interest in the workhouse poor.... born in an old workhouse infirmary herself! Her talk will explain the terrible fear of the pauper funeral, its historical roots, and its long shadow into our own times.

Her most recent work Dickens & the Workhouse (OUP, 2012) reveals how, while trying to save a London workhouse from demolition, she discovered Dickens had lived only doors away.

Admission price £8.00 (Members of the Florence Nightingale Museum £5.00) To book, please contact Katie Edwards on katie@florence-nightingale.co.uk or 020 7620 0374.
