Registration of personnel for Civil Defence Service



Admin History:
Created by City and County of Kingston upon Hull during the Second World War

Index cards and registers forming a record of persons registered for services of the Civil Defence Service. They were used to manage the personnel, what service, division and district they belonged to, their training process, and equipment issued to them. The descriptions list the information that could be included on the cards, however, in many cases only the basic information is filled in.

When these cards were initially filled out, the information was not always accurately taken with some surnames possibly being spelled incorrectly, a search using alternate spellings may be required.

The post-war records held at C TYR/20 are closed under the Data Protection Act due to their containing personal sensitive information and are not available for public inspection until January 2032.
