This chapter discusses chronic and obsessive grief that was rare among 19th century families. These reactions to deaths are seen as extreme responses to death which took place in extraordinary and distressing circumstances, including suicide, and sudden or premature deaths. In this chapter, the cases of Queen Victoria's response to Prince Albert's death, Lady Frederick Cavendish's reaction to the assassination of her husband, and Emma Haden's prolonged grief after her daughter's death are analysed.

Keywords:   chronic grief, obsessive grief, grief, 19th century, Queen Victoria, Lady Cavendish, Emma Haden
