65,000 new records opened in the 1939 Register


23 December 2022
Is your ancestor one of those named in the newly-opened 1939 Register records at FindMyPast?

Taken on 29 September 1939, this register aimed to capture details of the civilian population just as the Second World War began. It contains not only names and occupations but also full dates of birth – therefore you’ll see some records are redacted.

These 65,000 new records have passed the required 100-year mark and have been opened in this latest rolling release. FindMyPast holds the most up-to-date version of the 1939 Register online.
