Strange Stories UK, Ghost Story for Christmas 2020

Strange Stories UK, Ghost Story for Christmas 2020

Two stories from the records of the Society of Physical Research (SPR) investigated by Fred Stratton. There are similarities between the two stories, both classic haunted house stories, both of which were being investigated by Fred during 1913. 
One story was published in the journals of the SPR in 1914. Both stories were soon forgotten as a result of World War 1. 
When Fred died in 1960 records of the unpublished story, about Abbey House at Cambridge,  were found and published in the journal for SPR. The Abbey House story became quite well known and mentioned in various publications. The other story about an unnamed house in the Midlands seems to have been totally forgotten.
