The 1939 National Register

Using the subsequently abandonded 1941 census as a base, the National Register was taken on 29 Sep 1939 primarily for the issue of Identity Cards and Ration Books.

The Register was maintained up to 1991 with amendments showing subsequent marriages and was also used as a basis of the NHS Central Register.

Details are shown of each member of the household including name, date of birth and occupation. However relationships are not shown so although it can be assumed that a married male and married femae of similar ages are husband and wife, good practice would be verify this from other sources such as FreeBMD or of course purchase of GRO Marriage Certifiate if money is no object.
