Kelly's Handbook 1901

The Handbook includes key events in the lives of the featured individuals, as well as basic genealogical details. The entries are arranged alphabetically by surname and then by forename, and give a fascinating snapshot of each person’s life as at 1901; notably a census year.

Each record includes a brief transcript and an image of the original document. To gain the most from these records, it is best to view the image. The details in each entry will vary but most will include:

  • Title
  • Birth year
  • Marriage year
  • Death year
  • Family details
  • Education
  • Military service
  • Political party
  • Society and club memberships

For reasons of space, the entries use many abbreviations. Some (such as b for born) are self-explanatory but others are less obvious for the modern reader. Use Findmypast's Kelly's Handbook Glossary, to get the most out of each entry.
