1939 Register
« on: Tuesday 23 November 21 15:28 GMT (UK) »
This has probably been covered by people before, but I can't find a thread for it.

In England and Wales, they produced the 1939 register - almost a census really - I believe that was partly to do with the issue of ration books for the duration (but has been of immeasurable help to me sometimes in tracing people).  What happened in Scotland and N. Ireland?  Even though devolution had not happened then, it appears that Scotland differed in so many ways to E&W.  And how did they deal with rationing?  I am assuming that they took responsibility for their own system but, in such troubled times, it would seem to me that they would have been better 'pulling together'.  Was there any other type of list produced and, if so, is it available digitally?

Thanks for that, CaroleW...I don't think I shall even be trying the Scottish Register at that price!!  It does explain all I needed to know though.  Again, my thanks to you! :-*
