electoral rolls?Advice needed please.
« on: Wednesday 13 March 19 22:14 GMT (UK) »
As a last throw of the dice in attempting to trace 3 missing Mills family members post WW1, I am wondering if the electoral rolls for Collington Bromyard for 1919 or similar years might be able to help? or indeed the absent voters register for this period?
Would anyone be able to advise if these are held at Hereford archive or available online for a fee and,if so, what specifics I would need to know to make such a search as effective as possible ? (I know the 1939 registers can't help as the majority of family members had left the area by then.)
Hackett, Mills, Hart, Dunn

Electoral rolls for that period are not indexed by name so you need an address to search

I use ancestry.com. As long as you are not looking for a Smith or Jones there is a good chance of finding who you are looking for.

If you have Ancestry access - here's a link to Hereford directories 1917 but as you are looking from 1918 onwards it may not be of any help
