Newspaper Record of Conviction
« on: Thursday 13 December 18 23:07 GMT (UK) »
Hi, after some help on here from rootschat I located the attached prison record for my great uncle Thomas Entwistle (now deceased) at Wakefield prison. The detail is a little less than I'd hoped so I was wondering if any local newspaper records exist for the case?
Thanks for looking, Luke

Entwistle, Thomas Brian
Convicted 21.11.1957
Sentenced 06.01.1958

Hi CaroleW,

he was born Thomas Brian Entwistle in Oldham on 02.01.1934 and changed his name after his release from prison to Brian Thomas Entwistle (I don't know if the change was official but his death certificate has him registered as Brian Thomas and another of my great Uncles as witness to the death). He died in Bradford at the infirmary on 30.12.1987.

Thanks
