Dear All
Thank you for the kind messages that you have been sending in, regarding Louise. I have passed them on to Chris and her parents.
Although as yet no date has been set for the funeral, it will be taking place at the Crematorium near Bar Hill, Cambridge, followed by a send off being held in Queens college Cambridge.
Louise’s parents and Chris have kindly asked that anyone planning on attending please DO NOT wear Victorian costume as it will be too emotional for them.
As soon as a date has been set, I will send it out to you all.

It is my unfortunate duty to inform all those who knew her, that today Louise Copsey a much valued member of our group has sadly passed away. Apparently due to a sudden and unexpected heart attack.
Our thoughts are with her family and Chris Rowlands to whom she had recently become engaged.
She will be missed.

I am currently in discussions with a TV production company looking to make an 8 part mini series set in the late Victorian era. If you are interested in taking part send me an email: or visit our website: We will particularly need some late Victorian London policemen! Alan?!

I have see such pockets in many Victorian bodices. I have always been told they were watch pockets. Though I am sure the wearer could have used it for a bit of change or a small key if they chose as well.

I visited a museum in Fife last weekend. They have a ladies dress from the 1880's, made either in Edinburgh or Glasgow for a wedding, definitely Scottish. The dress is of a heavy silk, lined, with a close fitted bodice with decorative buttons, but fastening with hook and eyes. On the right inner side of the bodice, at about breast level is a small pocket. The opening is about 2'' and is parallel with the front opening of the bodice, it curves in and down for about 3'' in a classic pocket shape. It is fairly rigid, made of silk, and is embroidered and lined, not a patch as was first thought. Does anyone have any ideas what it might have been for, suggestions so far, are for a watch, a locket, or a vinaigrette to help avoid 'body odours'. It is too small for a handkerchief or purse. The curator would love to know what it is, and I will pass on any information.

Well. Filming has finished. What a weekend! Brilliant. Look out for Midsomer Murders series 13 episode 6 The Noble Art.

We impressed the director and producer so much that we should (hopefully) get more work from them!!! Fingers crossed!
