I have said many times that one of the great things about running a local history website, is the information that comes from the people who use the site.

A lady recently posted a photograph on my ‘Liverpool Picturebook', Facebook page of her Great Grandfather, who was a Police Officer with both Lancashire Constabulary and Liverpool City Police, I contacted her to see what further information she could supply and was delighted to find that, not only did she have more photographs, but also the discharge certificates issued to her Great Grandfather, by both the forces he served with.

She says :

“My grandfather was John Arrowsmith Storey, born 1860 in Shildon, County Durham.

He was a police constable (1090) with the Lancashire Constabulary between 1881 and 1883. At the time of his marriage at Holy Trinity, Wavertree in March 1883, his profession was a tram conductor. However, he then served with the Liverpool constabulary from 1883 to 1909, when he retired.

Perhaps, the tram conductor role was to fill in between the different police forces.

John died in 1922 in Liverpool and is buried in Allerton cemetery”.
