    years ago ( mid 70's) my nan who lived in Holt lane rainhill was reading an article in the prescot and huyton reporter newspaper about a victorian murder, she then told me that either a victim of jack the ripper or a suspect of jack the ripper was buried in st annes church in Rainhill.

    Default JTR Suspect

    That would be Frederick Bailey Deeming
    If you follow the link Cadfael has provided you will find a small piece regarding his murderous activities in Rainhill

    thats an interesting piece , I thought the connection was jack the ripper for some reason, may have been clouded by people telling me the ripper walked the streets of liverpool and merseyside for a time

    I think there has been talk that Deeming was the Ripper. (Chris George will be able to help here!)
