As can be seen from the above the information supplied under FoI requests for the 1939 National Registration are at present supplied in transcript form.

 

There is no indication whether the NHS still hold the original registration cards or whether they have been destroyed.

There is also no indication whether the address 60 Holly Walk is the residence of all of the above or whether they were simply present at the time of the registration.

From knowledge of the family I feel the transcripts are an accurate reflection of the information supplied, but as with most family research each fact discovered in turn leads to more unanswered questions.

 

There are also many questions arising from the format of information given.

Such as.

 

Are there other residents at the address?

What basis is used to decide whether residents are currently living or deceased?

Do the original schedules still exist?

Where are the schedules archived (if they still exist)?

 

It is hoped answers to these and other questions will be revealed in the course of time.

 

There are also omissions, which may be due to the way I phrased my question.

 

Name of the householder or person who made the return omitted.

Dates of birth omitted (day month and year column) instead, age extrapolated.

Additional names given as initials rather than full names.

 

It is hoped that a means to quickly digitise the schedules (if they still exist) or the transcribed information may be found.

That hope has partly been realised with the release on 02 November 2015 by Findmypast of the 1939 National Registration on line.

 

With the release of the online database of the 1939 National Registration I have updated this page to enable comparison to what is available today 02 November 2015.

 

As you can see the NHS did not transcribe all the available information as they were ordered to do by the Information Commissioner, some entries are still redacted, in line with legislation, but these will be opened as proof of death is provided or when the person would have reached the age of 100 years and one day whichever comes sooner.

It is hoped the answers to some of the above questions and omissions are revealed in the course of time.

Watch this space.
