Now that you have studied all the evidence, you should be able to make a mental picture of what Edith Houghland may have been like. Having used the sheet "Assembling the Evidence" to make a character profile of her, you may think there are some questions which remain unanswered. So do we!
There is a follow-up to this Webquest (How Did Edith Houghland Die?) because Aunt Lucy now thinks there may have been some foul play involved in Edith's "accidental" death. It's too late to bring anyone to justice of course, but it would set Aunt Lucy's mind at rest to know if it really was an accident. Look at the background to this page! You could always do your own follow up now you know the situation so well. Ask your teacher if you fancy giving Holmes a hand.
This Webquest was created with the help and support of Alison Lloyd at Hartlebury Museum (Worcestershire).
