    Default record of a constable

    hi

    can anyone help ? , I am trying to establish if Fredrick Albert Eldridge b.1871 , still lived /served in Headcorn ,kent as a police constable after 1911 ( census ) .

    And if he did , was he related to A.Eldridge KIA during the Great war , I am trying to find the details of the fallen for the Headcorn memorial , however their appears to be no family connection locally to him .

    There are 14 possibles on CWGC , with no family details to Headcorn , so I am trying to trace the family .

    as always , I await your guidance and help .

    note : I realise this cross's two topic's/threads posts ,so it might have to be posted on the WW1 thread.

    Hi Dean.

    The 1939 Register on Findmypast has a Frederick A Eldridge living in the Malling R.D. District of Kent. His birth year differs slightly but the profession is right. There is another person with the same surname in the household.

    I can't quote full details because of Findmypast's terms and conditions.

    Apart from the Metropolitan Police and the Royal Irish Constabulary. police records aren't "public records" as officially defined which means it's a matter of chance whether they have survived.

    Kent History & Library Centre certainly have some police records. It might be worth having a browse.

    Otherwise Kent Police may have retained old service records.
