I had 5 great uncles who were policemen, 4 in the Met and one in the City police.  The records at The National Archives were very useful, they gave physical descriptions and details about former employers etc.  Pension records tell you how much they were allowed for coal, their marriage date and place, ages of children etc.  Invaluable.

Just wish my grandfather - another brother - was taller.  He was too short to join the police and I don't have nearly as much detail about him!
