Electoral rolls - Wickhamford, 1939

Notes on the 1939 Electoral Roll

Wickhamford%201939%20p%2025.JPGThis Register was issued on 16th October 1939.  This was shortly after the outbreak of the Second World War and the next list was not drawn up until the end of hostilities.  The names of electors in the table below are those resident in the parish.  The full list also included those qualified to vote on the basis of occupation of land and business premises.  By comparing with the 1939 Register, which was taken on 29th September 1939, it is possible to gain a fairly complete picture of the village on the outbreak of war.

The Electoral Roll is currently sorted by electoral number (which is largely alphabetical); to sort on Name or Address, simply click on the column heading. To find out further details about the nature of the electoral qualification, click on the number. Those who owned land in the village but did not live there were entitled to vote in the local government elections but not the parliamentary elections (though they would, of course, be registered in their home area). With regard to local government elections, both husband and wife were qualified in respect of the same property.

Who could vote in parliamentary elections

All males aged 21 years and over; all females aged 21 years and over.

Who couldn’t vote in parliamentary elections

Men under 21; women under 21; aliens; peers; lunatics.
