The resource I have used for former police officers is:

Police Staff Register with Nominal Index. Book 1. 1859-1927. (Microfilm 3348)

However I can't find this file on Archway. I recall from the last time I tried to access it that a restriction was placed on the file.

I believe that you now have to specify the individual you want to research in your request and that is all the information they will provide, rather than allowing you to scroll through the microfilm.



I (think) I've had experience with this file before on another branch of the tree, I think I just provided the name and details and they transcribed all the information for me, free of charge. I think that was indexed though, not sure with this one, I might be confusing two different files though, the names all sound the same!

I might go down to the Archives in a couple of weeks time regardless, so I can do that, I appreciate the offer though.

I may have found where he was (possibly) stationed though! Putting Constable Munro into PapersPast I found an 1864 reference to a Constable Munro of Campbelltown, since there was only the one reference, and the fact that I know they were in the Akaroa region by 1866 I think this promising.

No its not, its the family of Robert Munro and Sarah McLuaters who married in 1872. That Robert was a carpenter and died in 1876, his will is available on FamilySearch.

It gets really confusing with all these Robert Munros, I tell you  :o

The Robert Munro who died in 1873 was the Pigeon Bay one. He was my great great grandfather.
