...for October 1908 to March 1909 - are they available - if they are will they have the prisoners date of birth and next of kin noted?
Thanks.

The ones I have seen are pretty scanty in additional information other than name, abode/town , occupation & Offence.

JOHN DORRINGTON (Sheffield)
- I have details of his offence and sentence - (6 months hard labour Wakefield Prison from 8 October 1908) - Thanks Pauline.

Can anyone access the actual Prison records to see what details are given about him?

Also can a check be made to see if he was admitted to a Mental Hospital about 1908 - West Riding Asylum? ?   (He wasn't in Middlewood Sheffield.)
