DIGGINGUP1800: DISSECTING THE CRIMINAL UNDERWORLD OF BRITAINS BODY SNATCHERS is a website by Suzie Lennox. To start she recommends two of her favourite posts Stealing a Cadaver and Making a Killing.
There’s also a YouTube video Raiders of the Grave: Macabre tales of Bodysnatchers & what churches did to stop them. The presentation starts at 17:10.
