The trial of William Herbert Wallace for the murder of his wife Julia in 1931is one of the most notable British trials of the twentieth century. For those readers who are not familiar with the case, there is an excellent account albeit lengthy on this blog.
Over the years I have read a number of books and articles on the murder and its aftermath, but to date I have not reached any definitive solution to the events that occurred that January night in Wolverton Street, Liverpool
But I always keep my eye out so to speak for any additional information and so I was surprised by the following two newspaper articles
The first is an account of Julia's funeral at Anfield Cemetery (Liverpool) on Saturday 24th January 1931
There were only four mourners at the funeral one of which was her husband William Herbert Wallace. There were no women present. Strange and rather sad
The second cutting is from The Evening Telegraph dated 28th April 1931
