Looking Up the 1939 Register with FindMyPast Pro

+1 vote
Hello Fellow Wikitreers!

I'm once again looking for some help (largely to avoid paying subscription fees) in getting a copy of a specific record. Two sets of great-grandparents appear in the 1939 Register of England. This is available through FindMyPast, but only if you have a paid Pro account.

I know exactly which records I'm looking for, but I don't imagine I'll have much use for a paid account right now, as I'm currently in school. It would be incredibly helpful if someone would be able to look these files up for me, and then send me the images.

The families I'm looking for are:

Smith Household from Surbiton M.B., Surrey, England (featuring Joseph E Smith (born 1910) and Dora G (D) Smith (born 1914))

Gill Household from Kingston-upon-Hull C.B., Yorkshire (East Riding), England (featuring James Gill & Kathleen Gill - daughter (born 1913))

If you're able to help me out, thank you so much!

- Gillian

You can access findmypast for free from libraries in Britain - but I'm not sure if that covers the 1939 register.

Hmm that didnt work well ... bear with me

I don't understand ... when I upload the image I see sliders allowing the full image to be seen ... after I save it becomes locked with only part visible. Please someone tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Oh ... doing Right Click -> View Image shows the whole thing.
The record for the Smith family showed up! Thank you so much!
The Gills had a 3rd household member (presumably a child) but it's been redacted as they might still be alive.

Sorry I tried but I only have a Premium Subscription and apparently I need Plus or Pro subscription. Sorry I couldn't help. :(

You can open an individual household using credits or you can now buy a monthly subscription if you want to look at several households.
