1939 register

The 1939 register was taken on the 29th September 1939 ready for the war effort. It was then maintained by the NHS for many years; so has a lot of updates.  This version is a transcription of the transcription of the index taken from ‘findmypast.co.uk‘ . If you find any errors please let me know as there are always errors in transcriptions. The base data from ‘findmypast’ has errors,  I found several as I was transcribing.

This is a YouTube video made by The National Archives –

‘Mouse over’ the red dot and you can see the name of the resident; click on the red dot to see more details of the house.

If there are any errors in the data please let me know. If you have any updates for the houses or people please send me the details.  Only locations of ‘known’ houses have been shown, the rest are still shown in the spreadsheet below.

Enumeration districts.

The 1939 Register was indexed by the government enumeration districts and Waltham Chase was under the Droxford Rural District and split over three enumerations:

These are : EEFG, EEFH, EEFT and can be seen as separate ‘sheets’ in the following Excel spreadsheet.
 
 

The transcription

This is an Excel spreadsheet including the details of all the index entries that I have transcribed.

Latitude and Longitude data in the  ‘Where’ column will be used to map the houses onto a Google map as above. If anyone wants to help complete the data in the ‘Where’ column I would be extremely grateful.

The following sheets on the Excel workbook have a ‘Slicer’ allowing selection of categories. You can filter the data  by clicking on the type of data you want. To clear the previous selection click the red cross at the top of the Category box.
