Reuniting the Ghosts of Whitechapel

Jack the Ripper. Who was he? Are his descendants walking among us?

Help us find out.

In the 125th anniversary of the Whitechapel murders we’re looking for the living descendants of those notorious times.

From descendants of the Police who investigated the 1888 murders, to descendants of the victims, to descendants of the journalists who covered the case, and even descendants of the suspects – we’re looking for them all.

Teaming up with Discover Your History we’re asking for genealogists and historical sleuths to give us the names with which we’ll inspire a Whitechapel reunion.

We’ll reward gift vouchers to the best sleuth and we’ll champion your solving of a 125-year-old mystery which still haunts the streets of London.

Help us with the search by emailing your detective work to
