    Notes 
    • The following is from ancestry.com's WW1 pension records:
      Henry joined the Coldstream Guards on 22 April 1918, aged 26 years 10 months. Prior to enlisting he was a police constable in the Surrey Constabulary. He got to Lance Corporal and was discharged on demobilisation on 31 March 1920. He gave his address as 45 Maybury Road, Woking, Surrey.

      Whilst still a police constable, Henry played a part in the 1924 'Blue Anchor Hotel Byfleet poisoning' See http://www.open.ac.uk/Arts/history-from-police-archives/RB1/Pt2/pt2Vaquier24.html for details of the case.

      October 2012: James Earley sent the following, which appeared in The Dover and East Kent News on Friday 17 July 1931:
      A Dover man, Mr H Minter, has been appointed Superintendent of the Hersham Division of the Surrey County Constabulary. Mr Minter was promoted Inspector not quite two years ago, and his latest step is due to Supt. W H Bird, whom he is succeeding, having been appointed Deputy Chief Constable of Surrey. Mr Minter, who joined the Surrey Constabulary in 1912, and was promoted Sergeant in 1925, was the son of the late John Stephen and Susan Minter, of Tower Hamlets. He was for several years, as a youth, employed by Messrs Palmer and Sons, of Dover. Dover can be proud of Mr Minter's rise in such an important Force as the Surrey Constabulary.
