Victorian and Edwardian Prisoners

Posted by Liz Jack     Category: Crime, Genealogy, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, Photographs

Are you missing an ancestor in the late 19th and early 20th centuries?  Perhaps they were in Gloucester Gaol?  My book containing photographs and criminal records for prisoners held in Gloucester Gaol during 1870 and between 1883 and 1906 is now available. Entitled ‘Victorian Prisoners in Gloucester Gaol – A Rogues’ Gallery’ it costs £14.99 from all good bookshops.  Published by The History Press it has ISBN: 978-0-7524-5129-9.  It contains information and mugshots of men, women and children from all round the world, not just from Gloucester or Gloucestershire.  Perhaps your ancestor was there …..

    I bought the book which wonderfull. Unfortunately the person I was looking for was in Gloucester gaol after the cut off date of the book. I know he was an inmate in 1911 and am curious about the crime he commited.
    I would reccomend the book to anyone as a darn good read and hope there will be another of later prisoners.

    Hi can you tell me if old fingerprint records from the edwardian period still exist and, if so, where they can be seen? Thanks Ruth A.Symes

    Before buying your book, I would like to know if Sarah Elizabeth Day, trial Dec. 1869 is in your book. The records show the result was “No Bill” and she would then be charged with “concealment of birth”. I assume this would carry a sentence of some type, but can’t find any information on it. Thanks for your help. Donna
