It is with sadness that I have to inform you of the death of ex PC Stephen Robert PICKLES who passed away after a short illness at The City Hospital, Nottingham on 25th January 2023. His next of kin was his sixth wife Mrs Chris Hallam.
I believe Stephen joined the Derbyshire Constabulary in approximately 1966, retiring after 30 years service. I understand that he served in various areas of the force, including Alfreton, Buxton and Long Eaton. There is also a suggestion that he served as a Constable in Nottinghamshire Police for some time, possibly immediately before retirement. After his retirement it is believed that he again joined Nottinghamshire as a member of their Support Staff in the role of a Custody officer or similar.
His funeral service was held at Bramcote Crematorium on 16th February 2023.
Apologies that the information we have may be somewhat vague and confusing.
