House Parson Cross
|Visits from ghostly figures
|Team: Bren, Steve, John. We arrived
at the house (a small bungalow in North Sheffield) at
about 9pm and were greeted by couple in their late 50's.
The woman was very nervous and jumpy. She told us she
had been seeing the figure of a man in the bedroom. Her
husband said he had also seen a figure. The woman added
that she was frightened to go to sleep because she was
worried she would wake in the middle of the night to find
the figure sat by the bed, so she kept the light on all
night. They have lived in the bungalow for three years
and have never experienced anything before. It had only
been over the past two weeks that they had been seeing
things. The woman mentioned to me that her husband was
in ill health and that someone had told her that spirits
only appear when someone is about to die. I assured her
that spirits could appear for all sorts of reasons and
that she shouldn't worry herself unnecessarily.
The couple showed us to the bedroom. The first thing we
noticed was a fusty smell. Both John and I felt tightness
in the chest. Steve set up trigger objects, small alarms
and a camcorder. We took some baseline readings; we used
the EMF to check for wiring and pipes. There seemed to
be quite a high reading over the bed which we agreed could
be due to static electricity being as the bed cover was
The couple left us to do a vigil to see what we could
pick up. We noted that the windows were single glazed
and that there was a slight draught from the right hand
casement. We sat quietly and waited. John asked if there
were any spirits present and asked them to give us a sign
if they were there. A couple of minutes later the room
started to grow hazy and a swirling mist formed over,
and to the right of, the bed.
I started to go into trance and apparently started talking
in a man's voice, mumbling a name and asking for help.
It turned out that this was the man that had lived in
the house previously and had died in the bedroom. The
spirit was asked to leave the couple alone.
A couple of minutes after it was obvious that someone
else was present. We all noticed a sweet, perfume smell.
John asked if there was anyone there and we all felt the
bed shake slightly. I picked up that the woman had Alzheimer's
and couldn't communicate by speech. We asked her if she
wanted to communicate by another method and the bed shook
again. We told her we would ask her some questions and
if the answer was 'yes' to shake the bed. We confirmed
by this method that she was female and had lived here,
that she was looking to be reunited with her husband.
We told her that she was frightening the people that now
lived in her house and asked her to move on.
The atmosphere lightened and the fusty smell was gone.
We asked the people to come in and see if the room felt
better. They agreed that it did.
I checked with couple the following day to make sure everything
was calm and to tell them if they needed further help
to call us
