Dennis Nilsen’s 1985-1995 Used Pans & Spatula
These two large pans (with lids) and frying pan (which is in a plastic bag as it still contains the remnants of its last dish, cooked in the mid 1990s) and a wooden spatula were used by Dennis Nilsen at HMP Wakefield in early 1985. These pans are indirectly eferred to in History of a Drowning Boy (DN’s autobiography) on page 195: “In constructing some measure of stability and economic viability into our partnership, Jimmy and I started a business making and selling curry over the weekends. I would concentrate on the production and he would handle the ordering of supplies and the financial side. I was, after all, a trained chef and could produce saleable goods. We built up a regular clientele and were able to make about £9 a week, on top of our workshop wages, to spend in the canteen. The authorities would, again, turn a blind eye so long as it didn’t pose any threat to the stability of the wing.” The pans were handed out of prison in 1995.
