Hubert William Crane was born at Holden in Yorkshire in 1856. He is the son of Canon William Crane and brother of Charles Paston Crane. Charles Paston Crane was for a time private secretary to the Inspector General of the RIC in the years 1895-97 and thereafter a resident magistrate who saw service in the Boer War and the Great War. Hubert William Crane was educated at Exeter College, Oxford. He joined the Royal Irish Constabulary as a cadet in about 1881 and saw service at Tulla in County Clare in the early years of the Land War. According to the 1911 on census night Crane lived in Barrack Street with his wife (who was twenty years younger) and one son. From 1911 to December 1919 he was County Inspector in the King’s County. Crane held his position as county inspector of the RIC notwithstanding the widespread criticism of the police by the Press and by Judge Drummond for failing to act promptly in regard to the Tullamore affray.
