Very saddened at what I found today during a grave hunt with Goldy & Migky.

Police Sergeant Charles Brett Headstone pushed over and broke in two.

I am going to take this up the Mancheters Chief Constable, it should not be left in that state

Ohhh thats awful Ken.
I just read thru the posting on here & to see the headstone on an earlier post & what it looks like today is so sad.

Do let us know how you get on whith the Chief Constable, at the end of the day its police history as well as social history so he should try & do something.

Hi Annie

One step at a time.  :)

When I get a minute to myself I am going to write to.

Mr Peter Fahy, The Chief Constable of Manchester.

I will post the reply here when I get it.

Hi Rose,
I believe we were related to Charles Brett on my Grandmothers side, he was a Great, great Grandfather, I have been speaking to my mum about it today, will see if we can find out any more information and update you.  Really interesting reading this thread.

Hi Shell

Welcome to Rootschat.

I did transcribe the documents I got from the Police Museum many years ago, this is the only live link to the PDF file on Rootchat, feel free to get it and have a read if you want.

Just to let you know this tread started back in 2005, so you may or may not get replies.
