Electoral Registers on FMP

This article was posted in Essex Resources, Miscellaneous, UK History.

Find My Past have just announced the release of their largest single collection to date with over 5.4 million images of England & Wales Electoral Registers 1832-1932. These contain approximately 220 million names. Covering over 100 years these images are of microfilmed copies of printed registers stored in the British Library where they cover 2.25 miles of shelving.

These registers are listings of all those registered to vote in a particular area. The lists were created annually to record the names of eligible voters and their reason for eligibility, such as their residence or ownership of a property.

These registers should be useful for tracing your ancestors’ movements after the 1911 census.
