Exeter Prison inmate - 1960s
« on: Saturday 22 December 18 16:01 GMT (UK) »
Is there any way I find details of someone who served maybe 6months in Exeter Prison - the person is long deceased? 
I think I tried the prison itself a few years ago to no avail.  They would have been sentenced in Cardiff - but I had no joy there either.
Seems odd that you can access 19c records with pictures etc but nothing for the more recent past.

Doesnít the 100yr rule apply to those records whether living or dead??

Hi     


So what are you really looking for?     


You have their personal details.       
Why do you need their prison record?

Just any info on why they were there etc - have an idea but would be interesting to see in black and white.  Hence why I was also trying to track down a newspaper article maybe from Cardiff.

So,     

[ You said "they" ]     



Give us what you have?   

eg why Cardiff     
     
It really does help, saves duplication of effort . . . . .  ::)

One person - lived in Cardiff but ended up in Exeter prison for about 6 months if info given to me was correct.  Not sure of dates but early 60s.
