Seems James Hawkins died aged 41 in Hendon RD in Dec 1918
His burial on 8 Nov 1918 at Little Stanmore, Middx has his address at 6 Mead/s Road
His wife Jessie is there with him in 1918 & then at that address every year up to 1965 as per London Electoral Rolls. And again there as per 1939 Register where birth date is 24/12/1876

I have had success finding records for my great grandfather and his brother who both served around 1900 but may have just found that my great great grandfather was serving about 1850. I have found what may be him on the joining record and found the warrant no, 27593 (joined 1850) but can't find any other records associated with that no. as I did with the later ones.  I think it is the police register I have found for my gt grandfather, which lists height, weight, birthplace and other interesting info but I can't see it available for as early as 1850. Am I being blind?!

I was hoping someone might just be able to tell me if records existed for 1850 here. :)

I'm looking for George Harding Penfold.  I found a mention of him in a court record on Ancestry in July 1850 and found his joining record (May 1850)  but because on 1851 census he is living with his family in Droxford, farmer's son, and later was a farmer, I had no idea he had ever been a policeman so am trying to find out if it is the same man.

I am trying to find out about EDWARD HINE who is listed in the 1851 census as being a police constable living in police barracks in North Street, Westminster (parish of St Martin in the Fields). His place of birth there is given as East Sheen, Surrey but he fits with someone of that exact name who was christened in Mortlake in 1827. He married (back in Mortlake) in 1852.... and then I cannot find him again.

Over thirty years later an Elizabeth Hine's marriage shows up in Dumbartonshire and the marriage record gives her father's name as Edward Hine, policeman, deceased. And then her place of birth is given as Westminster, England.

Rather intriguing! As this would have been in the early days of the Met I'd love to find out more about Edward - I cant find a police pension record, death record or anything except these two references to him being a policeman in Westminster. Any ideas on where to look would be helpful and appreciated.
