I am just in the midst of editing a book about the police force of a certain town in the UK, and had to look up this name, as I didn't think it could possibly be correct. But it seems that it is! Here is the paragraph in which he appears. This might help you with your search for information.

"On Tuesday, 13 May 1938, at the annual police inspection, Colonel Jacynth d'Ewes Fitz-Ercald Coke, CMG, CVO, CBE, His Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary, in the company of the  xxxx inspected the air raid precautions centre at  xxx . He complimented the officers upon the scheme "

Good luck!
