Ireland immigration records
« on: Sunday 12 April 20 18:44 BST (UK) »
Hello!

I am looking for members of the GAFFNEY family that travelled from Ireland to England in the 1940's / 50's.

I have tried searching on FindMyPast but comes back with 0 results? Can anyone suggest a website?


Thanks in advance x

There are no records for that type of journey. They were never kept. (There are some minor exceptions, but in general, passenger records were only kept for intercontinental journeys).

Just a minor point ;D

You were looking for emigration records (i.e. leaving); rather than immigration records (i.e. arriving).
Similar words, but a significant difference in meaning ;D

I guess movement within the UK is just "migration"?

Most of Ireland wasn't in UK during the period littlefacey is researching. However, free movement between Ireland and Britain continued.
