THE POLICE GAZETTE

Part 3: Issues for 1829, 1858, 1879-1881 & 1898 from the British Library Newspaper Library, London

The Police Gazette is an outstanding resource for all those interested in:

  • Exploring the criminal underworld of Georgian and Victorian England.
  • Understanding the truth behind the depictions of London by Fielding and Dickens.
  • The social history of crime and policing.
  • The values placed on personal possessions.
  • Genealogy - there are extensive lists of criminals, army deserters (who may have changed identity), missing persons and those sent to Australia.

Part 3 fills some important gaps in the coverage of the first two parts, offering issues for 1829, 1858, 1879-1881 & 1898 from the holdings of the British Library Newspaper Library, London. This means that scholars can now examine virtually unbroken sequences of the Police Gazette from 1797-1810, 1828-1840 and 1866-1900. This represents coverage of 48% of the total run from 1772 to 1900.
