Maps, directories, electoral registers and rate booksMaps
Some of our local street directories can be viewed online.
We hope to make our electoral registers for the years 1832 to 2002 for the City of Manchester (as it was at the time) available online soon. These are arranged by ward and street. Please note that we do not have a surname index to them.
Rate books for Manchester from 1706 to 1901 are now available on Findmypast.co.uk. Free access to the Manchester rate books on Findmypast is available in any Manchester City Council library - please ask staff to log you on.
Original rate books from 1902 to 1956/1957 are available at Central Library with two weeks notice.
We also hold Land Tax Valuation Registers for 1910.
