Yorkshire is the biggest county by size England. It contains major cities and many major towns such as Barnsley,Doncaster,Halifax,Huddersfield and Scarborough.Even it's small villages have on occasion had a homicide.Some of the cases made national headlines many only made regional news and some are only known locally. With the passing of time many are forgotten even locally. This book tries to avoid rehashing well known cases but sometimes finding a case for a specific day of the month yields few if any alternative cases. It contains snippets of information, many of the Yorkshire items have appeared in local papers that were trawled during the research for this book. At one time the inquest into a death would be conducted close to where the death occurred. This resulted in many inquests being held in the nearest pub, some of these pubs still exist even under the same name. Google Earth is a good aid when reading this book.
