Police Roll Of Honour

Steve R

master brummie
I am currently working on the roll of honour for police officers that have died on duty over the years. There are still 42 photographs/picture of officers that the Police museum doesn't have. If there are any members that can assist please PM me. Some date back to the late 1800's through to the 1970's but hopefully there may be some good researches out there or others working on their family tree's that have come across the officer. I won't list them all in one go.

Robert Cooke - Wolverhampton Night Watch
PC Thomas Hardy - Birmingham City Police
PC George Snipe - Birmingham City Police (we do have a sketch of him)
PC Charles Philp Gunter - Birmingham City Police
Special Constable George Croydon - Birmingham City Police
PC George Robert Cooper - Birmingham City Police
PC Charles William Sheppard - Birmingham City Police
PC Hugh Miller -Birmingham City Police
PC Robert Holmes - Birmingham City Police
Police War Reserve Constable (WWII) William Hodgetts - Birmingham City Police
Special Constable William Dalgetty- Birmingham City Police
First Police Reserve John Barrier -Birmingham City Police

If you can assist many thanks

Hello Jo 90
We have this chap on the roll.
Terrence Hall died 28th February 1973. You have added some interesting information though. Just 21 years of age, tragic. I remember well doing the front office duties at Canterbury Road in the early 90's. Although I was based at Queens Road myself. There is an open day at the Lock Up Steelhouse lane on the 13th September with tickets still available.
