Kray Twins talk.

1st September 2014

Kray talk

Bill Beadle, Vice President of the Whitechapel Society, gave a fascinating talk about the notorious Kray twins and their family at St. John on Bethnal Green Church hall in September. From their parents life to the brothers' gruesome gang warfare, right up to the end of their life in prison, Bill had a great deal of detail to impart.

After the interval there was a Question and Answer session and in the audience was Wayne Lear who had travelled all the way from Paignton to Bethnal Green to hear the talk. He has written a book 'Krays from Cradle to the Graves' (available on Kindle) having studied the family for many years and collected lots of photographs and documentation including birth and death certificates. He was able to fill in a few more details about the life of the gangsters and their family's roots in the East End.

The evening also raised £305.92 for the Bethnal Green tube disaster memorial fund and our thanks go to Bill Beadle for giving up his time for the event.
