1939 Register
« on: Thursday 18 January 18 22:38 GMT (UK) »
Today I signed up with Find My Past as I noticed they have a new subscription which lets you see the 1939 register. I looked up my first family (my grandfather) and noticed his sisters' names have been changed to their married names. They didn't marry until a few years later, so how, when and why was the register updated? Has anyone else found this?

The National Register of 1939 became the NHS Register, and was continually updated until the 1991.

Changes in name show potential marriages after 1939.

Yes, there is an option to search by address.
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

Not only women's names, but any change of name the NHS became aware of. If for instance a son was know by his step-father's name later that may be changed as well if he registered with a new doctor.

   Most of my use of the 1939 register is in villages, and address searches are difficult, as District Council areas are used. As every village has a "Street" and most have a "Church Lane" it is not very helpful! Am I missing something?

You're not missing anything!

I have a lot of relatives who are in villages in cottages that don't have a street address, they can't easily be found, you have to find the first page in the district and scroll through.
