Suffolk Police records

Postby Deblace » Tue Dec 10, 2019 8:27 pm

Hi I am researching the family history for a Arthur James Gorham from Suffolk and looking for any information on his service with Suffolk Constabulary where he was based from 1881 ( Goal Lane, Beccles) and also as a Police Sergent at Woolpit in 1911. He was my paternal great great grandfather and any information would be welcome. Thankyou.

There's a lot about him in the newspapers.

In 1903 he fell off his bike and broke his leg..

Mentions him from about 1881, promotion to sergeant and quite a few arrests and court cases.

Go to: http://www.policehistorysociety.co.uk They have a document under the "Links & Information" section which provides helpful info for researching police ancestors. (I included the actual link earlier, but it doesn't want to open).
