Crimmin, Edmund

Constable, 5668

At about 9.30 a.m. on 6th April 1912, Constable Crimmin was riding along O'Callaghans Parade, Horsham. He was on his way to Greens Park to serve a summons when he saw a cyclist riding along the footpath. He turned his horse in an apparent bid to follow this person, but as the horse cantered along it suddenly leaped forward and Crimmin, who had been riding on a tight rein, was pulled from the saddle and crashed headlong to the roadway. He died in hospital at 12.40 p.m. the same day, never having regained consciousness.
