Can you help with an appeal to find family of Inspector Ian Culshaw of Liverpool Police?

An appeal is being made to find the family of an Inspector who worked at Liverpool Police from 1919 to 1944, after an old police medal was found in a garden.

The medal, dated 1944, was found in the back garden of a house in Rufford, West Lancashire, while the resident was gardening.

It was awarded to Sub Inspector William Culshaw for good service by the Watch Committee of Liverpool City Police.

An article in the Evening Express from November 1941 reveals that Inspector Culshaw joined city police in 1919 after he left the Army, and he was commended by HM Judges on many occasions for his careful handling and fairness to suspects.

PC Greson Fontenell from Southport Community Policing said:

“I found a few articles in the Evening Express about Inspector Culshaw who was appointed to the rank of Inspector, and it says that he was an exemplary officer.

“We would like to return the medal to his surviving relatives as it is a lovely piece of family history for them to have.

“The person who found it is also hopes it is returned to the rightful family of Inspector Culshaw.

“If you can help locate his relatives then please get in touch.”

If you know the family of Inspector William Culshaw, or can help find the family, then please contact PC Fontenell by emailing or call 0151 777 3945.
