Is the only way you can view details on the Electoral Roll at by purchasing credits? there a site (ie Ancestry or FMP) that you can subscribe to and be able to view the details with that subscription?

Ancestry has some, but not all. So: What period? Which area?


Reggie Report 10 Jan 2014 17:15

FMP has the ER 2002-2013...........but if people have opted-out of the version which is sold, you won't be able to find info about them

And the phone book is FREE

Hi Inky

Any period and any time really.

I do understand that people opted out of the Electoral Roll.

Very helpful.

Thankyou both for your replies.

Ancestry has:

London, England, Electoral Registers, 1832-1965
Surrey, England, Electoral Registers, 1918-1945
West Yorkshire, England, Electoral Registers, 1840-1962

They are images of the register books, transcribed with OCR software. As such they are a bit hit&miss. However, I have found them very useful in the post WW1 period.

I presume that you have read up on just who was included in the registers? Especially in the early years?

Genes has the electoral roll as well but you would need to buy credits unless you are a platinum member

What are you trying to find out?

Or are you not actually looking for anyone's details?

You could try here, I have just searched for someone that I have already found on FMP and it gives the same result.

Thanks for that link Mary J - any resource is worth a mention, especially if it can be used in conjunction with other free searches.
