Teresa has some pieces already but not a lot and would appreciate if you could take the time to contact her if you have anything that might help

Death of a retired Police Officer : Inspector 146 Archibald McRorie (Jock) WILSON

Jock Wilson

It is with regret that we have to announce the death of a retired Police Officer : Inspector 146 Archibald McRorie (Jock) WILSON who died on 2nd January 2015 aged 85 years.
Mr Wilson retired from Durham Constabulary on 21st December 1984 as an Inspector but many will recall him as Control Room Sgt & then Sedgefield Section Sergeant for many years .
Mr Wilson does not leave a widow.
The funeral is to be at 1pm on Friday 16th January 2015 at St Catherine’s Church, Fishburn. 
This is the church up from the ambulance station which may assist those attending the service.
The service is not private and friends are asked to please meet at church for 1pm. 
All are welcome to join the family afterwards for refreshments at Fishburn WMC.  Family flowers only please, however for anyone who would like to make a donation in lieu of flowers the family have asked if donations could be considered to be made to the British Heart Foundation.
Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.
