Sir Bernard Henry Spilsbury (Bernard Henry Spilsbury)

Sir Bernard Henry Spilsbury

Sir Bernard Spilsbury was Britain’s leading Home Office pathologist during the early 20th Century. Spilsbury worked on such high profile cases as the Crippen murder, Siddon case, ‘Brides in the Bath’ murders, ‘Blazing car murder’ and the Mahon case. His interest in crime led to him being recognised as the greatest medical detective of all time and one of the founders of modern forensic medicine. He was cremated on the 22nd December, the ashes scattered in the Gardens of Remembrance. (bio by: Kieran Smith)
