St. Giles Cripplegate Church



St. Giles Cripplegate Church

A woman suffering from catalepsy, was almost buried alive.....

Location: Fore Street, EC2Y 8DA

Description: The story of the Cripplegate Ghost. Over a hundred years ago, a London shoemaker was heart-broken when his lovely young wife died. On the day before the funeral, her body was placed in its coffin and taken to the church of St. Giles of Cripplegate. The shoemaker stayed with the coffin for a few hours until night began to fall. Then he left the church and made his way home. The fact is that this woman wasn't actually dead. She was suffering from an illness called catalepsy, which gave her the appearance of being dead though she was still alive.

This is the church where Lord Protector and general king-killing, massacreing, reforming nutcase Oliver Cromwell married Elizabeth Bourchier in 1620. (Martin Fields)
