Property Returns made after each raid and sent to the District Valuer and the Minister of Health

Reference No:
20 Jun 1940-19 May 1942

These are the copies of the returns made to the District Valuer and the Minister of Health after each raid. They are split into parts I, II and III and give the numbers of houses, factories, offices, public buildings and other premises which fell into each of the following catagories:

(a) Totally damaged

(b) So badly damaged that demolition is necessary

(c) Seriously damaged but capable of repair

(d) Slightly damaged (excluding broken windows)

The schedules of returns give a description of the property, the address of the property, occasionally the occupier and owner's names and the property's gross and rateable values and occasionally an indication of the damage made to the contents of the property concerned.

For raid numbers that affected particular streets, please consult the street index cards in the search room. These records cover raids 1-66.

These records are referred to in the card index to streets in the search room under the previous reference C TYP/1-5 but can be found without too much difficulty using calm.
