Coventry is one of the most bustling cities in the West Midlands, and is known for its three spires, motor manufacturing, watch making and medieval ruined cathedral. This city has all the modern amenities visitors could need, from high street and independent retailers, to renowned attractions.
Coventry's population has increased dramatically since the 19th century, and now numbers over 300,000 people, according to the 2011 census. This makes it the 11th largest city in the UK and means that if you are trying to track someone down, it's likely to be far from easy if you rely on old-fashioned methods like flicking through the phonebook.

Coventry Electoral Register Archives
White Pages offers you access to over a decade's worth of information from the edited version of the electoral register.
There are two versions of the electoral register – the edited version and the full version. The edited version does not have viewing laws applied to it, but since 2003 people have had the option to opt out of having their contact details appear in it. However, their name and address will still feature in the full version of the electoral register, which anyone can inspect under supervision at specific official venues or The British Library.
The electoral register is therefore an incredibly useful tool for tracking down lost friends or family.
In Coventry, you can make an appointment to view current and historic copies of the full electoral roll at:
Telephone: 024 7683 3034
You can access the records between 8:30am and 5:00pm on Monday-Thursday, and between 8:30am and 4:30pm on Friday.
Changes in City Boundaries
Coventry is surrounded on all sides by the West Midlands Green Belt, which has largely prevented the expansion of the city into the administrative county of Warwickshire and the borough of Solihull, as well as stopping the city from merging with surrounding towns such as Kenilworth and Nuneaton.
This means that if you're conducting a genealogy search of people in the Coventry area, it's highly likely that Council House (as mentioned above) will contain the historical electoral records you're looking for.
