It’s finally here!
This month we are able to greatly increase our knowledge of the people of Froyle through the 1939 Register.
16th “Find My Past” released as much of the Register as is available.
There are still some gaps, but, as with the Censuses, the record depends on the presence of people on Friday, September 29th 1939. There are constraints on the availability of information, but these are explained on The 1939 Register, accessible either via the jump menu at the bottom of this page or through The Records & Census from Contents.
We have been able
to transcribe 174 of 175 records referring to Froyle, and although some individual references have not been released, it is possible to see who was living in Froyle nearly a month after the declaration of War. The Additional Information section also ties in rather nicely with our record under Froyle at War of those involved in the ARP and Auxiliary Fire Service.
It has been quite a ‘spooky’ undertaking as there are many names of people we knew when we first moved here in 1971 who have since died.
You can see the entire register and download a pdf by following The 1939 Register in Records and Censuses on the Contents menu, or by using the jump menu below.
