Is this the last post about Grandad Beck?

Is this the end of this blog? Well, I have achieved what I set out to do, written about my Great Grandfather’s career in the police force.  With over 40 years service Grandad Beck is one of the longest serving policemen in Dorset Police.  This blog has exceeded my expectations when I started back in January 2016. I have written more than I expected, over 60 posts, one a week.  I have ‘met’ cousins, I didn’t know before and made some new friends. I have learnt about Dorset history, my home town of Bridport and my ancestors.

  1. I hope not, I look forward to your blogs. If you have completed the work on your great grandfather then there are always other people in the family to research!

    1. Alison, thank you for all your comments on my posts, they have helped to keep me going. Yes, there is lots more family to research, I am spoilt for choice. I am not sure were, or should I say whom, I will choose for my next post. Thank you for your help with my recent post about Eli Beck, the information you sent was helpful. Now if you have anything else I could use….

  2. I have so enjoyed reading the blogs about the Beck family and have learnt so much about the family that I didn’t have a lot of information on. Please, when you have time, resume the blogs, they are so interesting and I have loved receiving them. All good wishes to you and your family, enjoy your summer.

    1. Heather,
      Thank you for all your help with the Beck family information. Some of the family legends that you have told me about will be interesting to investigated further. I have enjoyed researching and writing the posts, it is just deciding where to go next. I will not leave it too long but I will not write so frequently.
      Best wishes Sylvia

    2. Hi Ian
      I am compiling archives of my Grandfather: George Peach PC 66. He joined after WW1, 1921/1923 he was stationed at Bridport. (Granddad is in some of the photo’s with superintendent Beck) 1929 he was stationed at Beaminster (My father was born at Beaminster)
      Grandad died of TB while serving, as village policeman at Leigh, nr Sherborne, in 1943, aged 47.
