Notes Thank you for your research request to Derbyshire Record Office. Firstly, I must start by making an apology. It was incorrect of me to tell you that magistrates' courts are exempt from the Data Protection Act. They are governed by this, as well as several other pieces of legislation. Also, I’m sorry this reply has taken so long. This was due the problems we’ve been having in tracking down the correct records in the Derbyshire Constabulary collection held here. However, despite the legislation, we are still able to search for details of persons who are no longer living. As you have already provided evidence that Bernard Rothman is no longer alive < > we can tell you the following: We have looked through the Derbyshire Constabulary Superintendent's journal, for the Glossop/New Mills/Chapel area, Apr 1931- Dec 1934 (Ref: D3376/Box/2). While this does reference the Trespass, it does not name those who were arrested. It only gives the following entries: On 24 April [1932] Sunday “During the afternoon 6 persons were arrested + conveyed to Hayfield Lockup. All prisoners were detained and arrangements made to convey them to New Mills Lockup where they were all detained for the night.” Then on 25 April [1932] Monday “All above prisoners were remanded on bail to a Special Court at New Mills on the 11th May next.” There is no entry in the journal relating to the Special Court. Further, the Magistrates Court register for this period (Ref: D246/1/2/14) does not specifically mention Bernard Rothman. Yet, it does reference the Trepass, and as you are already aware, it then states that the case was heard at Derby Assizes on 29th June 1932. Unfortunately, we don’t hold the necessary records for the Derby Assizes, but we do hold a Calendar of Prisoners for t
