Thread Name: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
Subject: RE: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
I have to confess, when I first heard the Florence Wyndham song I assumed it was about a fictional character - it was only a little bit of internet searching that threw up the story. That version of events was clearly accepted at the time, and was passed down through the family. The poenm written by the local vicar would also suggest that the story was well known and accepted locally.
Though, of course, none of this means it's true.
