National School Admission Registers & Log-Books 1870-1914 now on Findmypast

National School Admission Registers & Log-Books 1870-1914 now on Findmypast

Pre 1914 school admission registers and log books from 154 Surrey schools are now online, offering precious evidence of the gradual introduction of universal education in England and another fascinating source to explore for family historians with Surrey connections.  For many schools records begin after the great Elementary Education Act of 1870 which brought a basic education in reach of all.  However, for some schools the records go back as far as the 1820s when education provision was far more haphazard and the involvement of the state far less.

These records have been published as part of a National Consortium Digitisation Project managed by the Archives and Records Association (ARA), which will make millions of names from school records held by over 100 archives in England and Wales searchable online on www.findmypast.co.uk.

The names of the children in the admission registers have been indexed; and the log books can be browsed to read the headteachers’ daily reports on events in the schools.  These reports often mention pupils by name.

Visitors to Surrey History Centre and members of Surrey libraries will be able to search these records for their Surrey ancestors free of charge in any local library in the county, and subscribers to findmypast.co.uk across the world will also be able to view them in the comfort of their own home.
