Throughout October, we will be commemorating the 155th anniversary of Henry and Rachel Fanthorp’s passing. Come explore the unique and peculiar ways Victorian families mourned the loss of a loved one. Due to the macabre nature of the subject matter this program may not be suitable for children under 10.
