Tributes paid following death of Metropolitan Police Sgt Craig Cartman from Covid-19

Tributes have been paid to Metropolitan Police Sgt Craig Cartman – who has died aged 47 from Covid-19.

Originally from Skipton North Yorkshire, Craig moved to London in April 2000 to become a police constable in the Metropolitan Police Service.

Craig worked in several boroughs in the Met covering several different roles before gaining promotion and working as a Custody Sergeant in Met Detention since 2018.

The thoughts of all at the Metropolitan Police Federation are with Craig’s family, friends and close colleagues.

Craig was a committed family man and devoted father to a teenage son as well as five adult step children.

Sadly, Craig became ill with COVID-19 in the first week of January and passed away on Monday 25 January 2021.

He will be greatly missed by his family, police colleagues and friends.

Craig’s family would like to express their sincere gratitude to all the intensive care unit staff at Ashford & St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey for all their efforts in treating Craig in the final weeks of his life.
