1939 Registration

Postby Guy » Tue Nov 10, 2009 3:32 pm

I have just received the Information Commissioner's decision with regards to my request for information recorded in the 1939 Registration.
The Information Commissioner has found partially in my favour.

This means that it is illegal for the NHS Information Centre to withhold any information taken under the 1939 Registration if that information relates to deceased persons.

Details enumerated-
1. Names.
2. Sex.
3. Age.
4. Occupation, profession, trade or employment.
5. Residence.
6. Condition as to marriage.
7. Membership of Naval, Military or Air Force Reserves or Auxiliary Forces or of Civil Defence Services or Reserves.

Cheers

To request information email
enquiries@ic.nhs.uk

I know at least one person has used that address to gain access to information after reference to the information commissioner's decision.

I have posted a transcript of the information I received at
http://freepages.history.rootsweb.ances ... NatReg.htm

and have since heard someone else has been given dates of birth and other information.
It is possible that the information supplied will vary until a policy is formulated.
