    Yes, suicide was a crime and so was attempted suicide until 1961, you went to prison for it. The church considers that only god can end a life otherwise it is murder.

    My mum found a neighbour with her head in the gas oven and called an ambulance. They saved her life but she went to prison and her three children went into a Home because hubby "couldn't cope" and my mum always wished she hadn't interfered because no good came out of it. Hard times.

    Val, people who committed suicide were often refused burial services in churches and burials in consecrated ground because the act was considered a sin as well as a crime.

    Sad to think you must be very depressed to kill yourself ,so it should never be a sin.
