Birmingham electoral registers

We hold electoral registers for the City of Birmingham only, from 1832 until 2001. There are some gaps in the series, including 1916 to 1917 and 1940 to 1944 when registers were not compiled nationally during the world wars.

There have been numerous changes to the city boundaries and we only hold registers from the date that an area became part of Birmingham, such as Handsworth and Kings Norton from 1911 and Sutton Coldfield from 1974.

Before 1920, copies of the registers are on microfilm with the parliamentary registers, parochial registers and registers of electors arranged in a single sequence. From 1920 onwards the registers are in bound volumes, also arranged by year.

Some Birmingham electoral registers from 1912 to 1955 are available on
