Birmingham Electoral Register Archives
White Pages offers a preview of the edited version of the electoral register in order to find the person you're looking for.
The electoral register (AKA the electoral roll) contains the contact details of all registered voters in the UK. It comes in two versions, the full version and the edited version. From 2003 onwards, voters could choose to have their names and addresses removed from the edited version of the electoral register. However, their details will still be included in the full electoral roll. This is why the electoral register has become a vital tool for tracking down the whereabouts of lost friends and relatives.
Current and historic, full electoral rolls can be found at:
The Library of Archives,
The Library Of Birmingham,
Tel: 0121 242 424
To access the records, you must book an appointment in advance via email. See the national archives website for more information and opening times.
Changes in City Boundaries
Under the Local Government Act of 1972, Birmingham was reconstituted as a metropolitan district, covering both the former county borough of Birmingham and the municipal borough of Sutton Coldfield. That means if you were conducting a genealogy search and you were looking for records that pre-date Sutton as being part of Birmingham, then you would need to contact Sutton Coldfield Library to see the full electoral registers.
The address is:
Sutton Coldfield Library
West Midlands, B72 1XX
