Published February 2018, part of the Infamous Eastenders Series, this is an examination of the roots, genealogy and family history of two of East London’s most notorious figures, Ronnie and Reggie Kray. Many accounts of the infamous twin’s ancestry have appeared before, often wildly inaccurate or muddled in myth. Here, experienced Genealogist and East London Social Historian, Richard Edmunds, uncovers the true facts, the result of conversations with several of the twins surviving cousins, allied with lengthy and diligent research in the archives, the real-life  stories of French Silk Weavers, German Musicians, Irish Lords, and figures such as James ‘Jewey’ Lee, the twins maternal grandfather, an East End Meat Merchant, long committed to an Asylum, James ‘Mad Jimmy’ Kray, the twin’s paternal grandfather, East End Market Seller, Veteran of the First World War, and the truth behind the mysterious Critcha or Quicha Lee.


64 Pages, A4, Illustrated throughout with Black and White and Colour Photographs.
