The January 2019 Quiz

Well, 2019 has now, well and truly arrived and, to celebrate, here is our first Jack the Ripper Quiz of the year.

For those of you, and the number grows each month, who are seasoned veterans of our fiendish quizzes, you probably have no need of a quick summary on how to do the quiz.

If that is the case, then simply enter your name, or a name of your choosing, into the relevant boxes below, hit the “Start” button and away you go.


For those who might need a little explanation, please read on.

To begin the quiz you will need to enter your name into the boxes.

It doesn’t have to be your actual name, since the only reason we ask for it is that, at the end of the quiz, you will be presented with a certificate giving the date you took the quiz and the score that you achieved.

So you can use any name of your choosing.

A certificate bearing the name of Queen Victoria.

Once you have entered your name, hit the “Start” button, and the quiz will begin.

If the quiz won’t start for you (this can sometimes be an issue with iPhones and ipads) simply click on the white link directly under the quiz and this will take you to the main quiz which should then work for you.


The quiz consists of ten questions about the Jack the Ripper murders in particular and the East End of London at the time of the crimes.

Each question requires you to select the correct answer from either a list of four multiple-choice or true or false solutions. In other words, the correct answer will be directly in front of you, you just have to choose which one it is!

As with all exams and quizzes, it is imperative that you take the time to actually read the question. The most common reason for people getting the wrong answer is because they haven’t read the question properly and have, therefore, actually answered the wrong question!


There is no time limit on how long it takes you to finish the quiz. You can take as long as you wish.

Also, there is no limit on the number of attempts you can make, so, if you get questions wrong the first time, you can try as many times as you wish.


Once you have answered all the questions, simply hit the “Submit” button, and our backroom team will go to work and will mark your answers.

Within seconds, you will be presented with your certificate, which is warded by our esteemed Department of Ripperology. The certificate will give details of the date on which you took the quiz and the score that you managed to achieve.

You will also receive a detailed report telling you which of the questions you answered correctly and which of them you got wrong.


And, in essence, that’s all there is to it.

So, when you feel ready, scroll back up the page to the quiz box, enter your name, or a name of your choosing, hit the “Start” button – and away you go.

Best of Luck!
