The details of the survey requested were:
- Marital status
- Membership of naval, military or air force reserves, auxiliary forces or civil defence services or reserves
The survey returns from England and Wales are being digitized and are expected to be available online in November 2015! This is great news for me personally as both sets of my great-grandparents should be found in it plus numerous grand aunts and uncles as well as cousins.
But my "if only" wish? If only the 1940 National Registration taken in Canada could be digitized and brought online! Right now it is accessible through a search service and a rather hefty fee.
Details on how, when and where to access the 1939 UK records are found at Plugging genealogy's 30-year gap
UPDATE: Nov. 2nd is the release date! Guess what I'll be busy doing that day....
More information on the Registration is available on The National Archives Blog.
