Subject: RE: burke and Hare
They were grave diggers who dug up newly buried people ( dead people ) in Edinburgh and the lothians, they used to drink in my local pub The Crown Inn in Blackburn West Lothian. I,m sure I,ve have spoken to them in there a few times - ps " The Crown is a nice friendly pub but beware of the Whiskey ".
