1939 Register Map Search

You can now search the 1939 Register by address using our new map search feature. Simply enter the name of the street or location you wish to search to see a list of results for all the households in that area.

The 1939 Register provides a snapshot of the civilian population of England and Wales just after the outbreak of the Second World War.

As the 1931 census for England and Wales was destroyed by fire during the Second World War and no census was taken in 1941, the Register provides the most complete survey of the population of England and Wales between 1921 and 1951, making it an invaluable resource for family, social and local historians.
