Wullie Lamb

Street musician William Lamb was convicted of murdering his wife in their lodgings not long after the end of the First World War. The couple stayed at number eighty eight Candlemaker Row next to Greyfriars kirkyard burial gate. The story is told in Jan Bondeson’s new book “Murder Houses of Edinburgh”. Signed copies of Jan’s book are available from Edinburgh Books at the West Port not far from the scene of the murder. A newspaper review of the book can be found on: https://www.edinburghlive.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/murder-houses-edinburgh-new-book-19361440
