The October 2019 Quiz

It’s time for another quiz.

I hope those little grey are tingling, jumping, bumping and connecting, because, as the year races towards its end – another two quizzes and it will be Christmas – the dedicated “professors” in our Department of Ripperology have been putting their heads together to create a real stomper of a challenge to test your knowledge on the Jack the Ripper crimes and the Whitechapel murders.

As per usual, if you have had a bash at our quizzes in the past you will know how the quiz works, so you won’t require any guidance. However, if it is your first time, please scroll down the page and we’ll give you a few pointers on how to take the quiz and how to achieve the perfect score.

Remember, if the quiz won’t start when you click the button, click on the white link directly beneath the quiz and this will solve any problems.


To be honest, the quiz is pretty much self-explanatory. Once you have entered a name – or a name of your choosing – in the above box, you just hit the red “Start” button and away you go.

You will be presented with 10 questions about the Jack the Ripper crimes or about the history of Victorian Whitechapel.

Each question requires you to choose the answer from a list of four possible solutions or to decide whether a statement is true or false and answer accordingly.

Once you have answered all ten questions, simply hit the “Submit my answers” button and our behind the scenes boffins will go to work and instantly present you with a certificate that will detail your score and the date on which you took the quiz.

In essence, that’s all there is to it.


There is no time limit, so you can spend as much or as little time as you desire in answering the questions. Furthermore, there are no limits on the number of times that you can take the quiz, so, if at first you don’t do too well, just keep trying until you achieve your desired score.

So, whenever you are ready, enter a name – or any name of your choice – into the relevant box above, hit the red “Start” button, and away you go.

It is important that you read the questions properly in order to answer them correctly.

But, aside from that, away you go!

Good luck!
