William Robert Bell1

M, b. 5 January 1828, d. 15 August 1866
     William Robert Bell was born on 5 January 1828 in Berhampore, Bengal, India.2 He was the son of Robert Bell and Adolphina Rabeholm.3,1 William Robert Bell was baptised on 30 January 1828 at Berhampore.4 The marriage of William Robert Bell and Louisa Harriet Crozier was registered in the quarter ending December 1855 in the Windsor, Berkshire registration district.1,5 William Robert Bell died on 15 August 1866 in Leeds, Yorkshire, at the age of 38 of a tumour.

LEEDS, AUGUST 16, 1866.
Death of Mr. W. R. Bell, Chief Constable of Leeds.— We regret to state that Mr. W. R. Bell, the Chief Constable of Leeds, died yesterday morning, at his residence in Elmwood-terrace. Mr. Bell had been suffering for five months from a severe and painful internal complaint, and had, during the greater portion of that time, been confined to the house. For the last week he had been sinking rapidly, and his death was almost hourly expected. Mr. Bell was appointed Chief Constable of Leeds in December, 1861, being chosen out of a large number of candidates for the office. His father was an officer in the army, and he himself had at one time been lieutenant and adjutant in the 26th Regiment of Foot. Subsequently, he was for four years deputy chief constable of Monmouthshire, and was stationed at Pontypool, from which place he came to Leeds. Of the manner in which he performed his duties here there is but one opinion. Under his direction the police force of the borough has been raised to a high state of efficiency, whilst the firm ness with which he discharged his duties, and his gentlemanly bearing both towards his subordinates and towards all others who were brought into contact with him, rendered him universally beloved, and will cause his loss to be deeply felt. At the last meeting of the Leeds Town Council the sum of £100 was voted to him in recognition of the manner in which he had acted as Chief Constable of the borough, and as an expression of the sympathy felt for him under his protracted affliction. It is only a few days since the inspectors and sub-inspectors of the police force presented his wife with an admirable likeness of him by Mr. Ramsden, and during his illness many other marks of respect and esteem have been shown towards him by all classes of the community. The Leeds Mercury, August 16, 1866.6
