Reading Police Force
« on: Monday 26 March 18 11:02 BST (UK) »
Do any records survive of the Reading Borough Police Force circa 1890-1930. If so where can I access them please, as 2 ancestors of mine served as constables in this force around this period.

These have records from Sulhamstead and elsewhere.  Oxfordshire Family History Society has a full name index to the books - to have a search done either write to the address on the webpage, or list the names here.
