I’m not sure you can get prison records. Try looking at local papers.

Hi
How would i find out prison records as ive be chatting to a New family member of my grandad berties sisters great grand daughters with has been so lovely,but found out which i knew he went to prison and at the same time his father Bertie had a heart attack,ive wondered if its worth emailing Norwich prison if they could tell me why he went to prison in Norwich ,ive found so much out but id like to know why grandad bertie went to prison i was told it was for not paying my grandmother child maintenance but it must be more that just that,
Thank you
Melanie

He may have been cremated and his ashes scattered, in which case there will be no grave.


Presumably the reason for your dad and his siblings not seeing their father was because of Bertie's split with Elsie.
It must have been a bitter separation, as she didn't want her children to have anything to do with him.
You may never find out the reason.

Look in ‘search all member trees’ for the names you know, and if they appear, send a contact message. If the tree owner still uses the e-mail registered with GR, he/she will be notified and have the option of responding

Have you done any research yourself?

Where in the world did these people live?
