The Telegraph report is an anomaly on this point, being the only paper to say her brothers lived in London. All the others have Barnett saying they lived "at home", which was presumably in Wales.

Survey of London website

Anyone seen this site? It covers most of Whitechapel, you just select a building from the map and read about its history. Bloody brilliant!

Sedgewick Saunders was at Eddowes' autopsy, so isn't it likely the stomach and contents were examined by Brown in his presence, then passed directly to him at the time for later detailed analysis?
