The August 2019 Jack The Ripper History Quiz

Well, summer is well and truly upon us and, as the year passes, it is time for the August 2019 Jack the Ripper history and true crime Quiz.

If you are a regular quiz taker, then you won’t really need any guidance on completing this month’s cunning conundrum, so just dive right on in and enter your name, or a name of your choosing, into the boxes below, hit the “Start” button – and away you go. If you are new to the set up of the quizzes, just scroll down the page for a little guidance on how it works.


Here is a quick summary of how the quiz works and how to answer the questions.

To begin with, you will need to type in a name – it doesn’t have to be your actual name since we only use it in order to personalise the certificate that you receive on completion, which will give details of the score you achieved once you have completed the quiz.

Once you have typed in a name, you will just have to click on the red “Start” button and the August 2019 questions will begin.

If the quiz doesn’t start immediately – we sometimes have issues with iPads and iPhones – then just click on the white link above and this will take you to an online version of the quiz which should work without any problems.


Once the quiz begins, you will have to answer ten questions of the Whitechapel murders and the people connected to the crimes in various ways. Each one of the questions requires either a multi-choice or a true or false answer.

It is important that you take the time to read the questions, as opposed to just scan them quickly, as a common cause of wrong answers is that people haven’t read the question properly and have, therefore, answered the wrong question!

Wouldn’t that be frustrating?


Once all the questions have been answered,  hit the “Submit” button and are backroom marking team will get busy marking your answers, and, within seconds, you will be awarded a certificate, issued by our esteemed Department of Ripperlogy, on which you will find details of your score.


There is no time limit, so you can spend as much – or as little – time as you wish to on thinking over the answers.

In addition, there are no limits on how many times you can attempt the quiz, so, if you don’t do too well the first time around, don’t be downhearted, simply have another go and keep on trying until you achieve a score to be proud of!

And, that’s all there is to it.

So, when you are ready, enter a name in the box above, hit the red “Start” button, and away you go.

Good luck – oh, and enjoy the quiz.
