Haslemere Home For The Elderly (True Story)

In 1960, 81 year old Gladys Elton, for reasons best known to herself, conceived the idea of performing a striptease for her fellow residents at the Haslemere Home for the Elderly in Great Yarmouth, England. Unfortunately such was the effect of Elton's performance that it caused the death of one resident by way of a cardiac arrest and the treatment for shock of five other residents.

The next year, 87-year-old Harry Meadows, another resident of the care home achieved late-in-life notoriety when he accidentally killed another three residents by dressing up as the grim reaper and peering through and tapping on the residents' lounge window whilst holding a scythe.

The home was forced to shut as a result of these two incidents.
