1939 Register of England & WalesFREE33,094,734 recordsThe 1939 Register of England and Wales was conducted on 29 September 1939. For each household member the register records name, gender, address, birth date, marital status, place of residence, and occupation. This collection is an important census-substitute for genealogists and family historians. The entire 1931 Census of England and Wales was destroyed by a fire and no census was conducted in 1941. This makes the 1939 Register the most complete census-like collection for the population of England and Wales between 1921 and 1951*
