The Rose Hawkins séances

1953 - 1976

In life Rose Hawkins was a London flower seller, who had her 'pitch'
outside Charing Cross station. She was first recorded communicating in 1953
and later became instrumental during the
recording work of
George Woods and Betty Greene.

Rose describes her life and activities in the Spirit World in simple detail,
from her appearance, to the type of home she inhabits,
her hobbies and love of the garden, to the animals she sees around her.

Rose's depiction of life in the Spirit World became the benchmark for other communications and was f
eatured in Neville Randall's book 'Life After Death'.
