Police Records for 1889
« on: Monday 12 March 18 20:50 GMT (UK) »
My relation George Higgins committed a murder and then killed himself at the scene of the crime, in Tredegar in 1889. I have family history and newspaper cuttings, but I have been unable to find his burial info and unable to obtain a death certificate.
I have recently seen some tv programmes that show old records and photographs and wonder if anyone knows how I could check if any records are available? I would be thrilled if I could obtain Police records and possibly a photograph of George.
Very many thanks for any help.

Mark

Yes, many thanks although his age is incorrect. As a murderer I wonder where he would be buried?
