long shot i know but does anyone have any info on where prisoners were sent to complete hard labour sentences in 1938.
i have my great grandfather henry alfred lupton (1906-1941) being sentenced in 1934 to 9 months hard labour for bigamy and then again in 1938 for the rape of a servant. After that he dissappears until his death in 1941.

harry lupton
donald j abbotts
Don juan torreze compte de la cordova.

Welcome MISSY

What impressed Smith no end was the professionalism of the prison staff. Being incarcerated at Walton, even with its individual cell plumbing, was certainly no holiday – hard labour meant powering a treadmill to send water up to the roof – but treatment was fair. Kitchen records showed men on long-term hard labour could expect filling rations.

A pint of sweetened cocoa and 6oz of bread was breakfast, a pint of soup or cooked meat, 1lb of potatoes and 6oz of bread for dinner and a pint of oatmeal gruel and more bread for supper.
this is from a book by a former warder

In 1939 a Henry A Lupton was an inmate at HM Prison Leeds Yorkshire, DOB 10/10/06 occupation looks like a plasterer. Hope it helps.
