Default Alfred Ernest SCHOLES and the Whitechapel murders....

Alfred Scholes certainly had a long and interesting career in the police. I have attempted to compile an account of his earlier and involvement in the Ripper murders in particular, which I thought might be of interest to fellow forum members.......

He was born in Derbyshire on the 31st December 1864.
Joined Metropolitan Police on the 27th February 1888 - Warrant number 73418
Having completed his training and being posted to D Division.
At some point possibly as early as the 8th September 1888, following the Anne CHAPMAN murder, SCHOLES was seconded to H Division. He certainly claims to have been on duty in H Division on the night of the 29th/30th September 1888 for the double event murders and states in his memoirs that he was patrolling his beat on Tabbard Street East on the wrong end of Mile End Road, it was a memorable night there had been a Lord Mayors show, whilst I was on duty Jack the Ripper committed two of his murders in the very street that I was. He also recalls in his memoirs numerous occasions that he stopped and questioned innocent pedestrians, and led to comparative safety the many ‘fallen’ women who ran into his arms convinced that they had met ‘Jack’ and were next to be slaughtered.

Scholes of the Yard by GS Burroughs has a chapter about SCHOLES during the Ripper killings which can be kindly read for free on the below link.....

Police reinforcements sent to H Division began to be reduced in February 1889 and ceased altogether in March 1889.
