Family History Beginners Board / Re: Finding a crime from 1946

I've found a newspaper article but it does not specify the crime exactly

It is a serious offence though, possibly too sickening to speculate on here

What chance have I got?

Most registers seem to stop at 1935

Thanks guys, google is ok but on here you get a more personal account sometimes

He was in WW1, then had a life of crime. His forebears were sailors but he himself was not.

So I guess the tats could be any combination of those. I'll probably never know.

Family History Beginners Board / How rare were tattoos before 1930?

Turns out my ancestor (person in my profile pic actually) had a criminal past and records say he had tattoos on his forearms and hands.

Is this rare for 1929?

Staffordshire / Criminal record question about Staffordshire

If someone was convicted for a crime around 1930 in Bloxwich... where would the accused be sent?

I think I've found the right record, it says Stafford. Would it be Stafford? Or maybe Walsall?
