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.
