31 October 1888
Yesterday the remains of the female body found recently at Whitehall were interred at Woking by the parish authorities, the order for burial having been handed over to Inspector Marshall, who has charge of the case. The remains, consisting of the trunk, arm, and leg were removed from the mortuary in Millbank-street, Westminster, where they have been lying to await identification, to Wallis's-yard Workhouse, and placed in a coffin before being conveyed to their final resting-place. Among the persons who called on Monday at the mortuary was an old woman, who thought she recognized in the photograph which has been taken of the remains some trace of her daughter, who has been missing since August, but she could not be positive upon the point.
Speaking yesterday afternoon in connexion with the opening by the Marchioness of Tavistock of the Ratcliff-highway Refuge, Betts-street, St. George's-in-the-east, the Bishop of Bedford said that the importance of such a work had been forced on the public recently on account of the dreadful things that had happened in a parish with which he had been intimately connected. He hoped no one would think because of those dreadful outrages that matters were worse in that district than they were some time ago. He did not hesitate to say that the condition of Whitechapel and Spitalfields was very much better than it was ten years ago. If people wanted to help in Christian work in the East-end as a consequence of what they read and heard he did not think they could do better than help the Ratcliff-highway Refuge.
