Recently noticed your message that you left in 2007! My Great, Great, Great Grandfather was George Hodges, Born 16th of July 1827 and Died 27th Feb 1922. Living his life in Croydon, Surrey. He was also a Police Constable, the oldest Police pensioner. This appears to fit nicely into the names and dates of the information that you posted. I have visited his grave, with him lies his brother William Colin Hodges and Williams wife Emma. I have more information and photos. Look forward to hearing from you.
