Huddersfield Daily Examiner (11/Dec/1987) - Human Bones Laid to Rest
Of the 78 named victims of the Holmfirth Flood of 1852, only 5 do not have an known burial register entry and none match the description given by pathologist Michael Green. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the remains are linked to the 1852 Flood.
Human bones laid to rest
Human bones discovered in a disused mill dam at Holmfirth have been interred in Holmfirth’s Garden of Remembrance. The bones, discovered in a dam at Bridge Mills, are thought to belong to a female victim, aged about 30, of the Holmfirth Flood in 1852. A service was conducted by the Rev John Sausby, Vicar of Holmfirth.
