Electoral Registers are lists created annually of people who are eligible to vote and include their reason for eligibility, such as their residence or ownership of a property. This is an ongoing project. The record set currently holds records for 1920, 1926-1931, and a smaller number of records for 1932. This invaluable record set includes those first entitled to vote after 1918, and is an excellent substitute for the lost 1931 England & Wales census.
The detail in each register varies but will include some or all of the following information:
Polling district or place – This will include polling districts or wards. Civil parishes are not indexed and will need to be searched by keyword.
Address or abode
Nature of qualification or a description of property
Name, description and residence of landlord or other person to whom rent is paid
Occasionally occupation or age
