Maps, directories, electoral registers and rate booksMaps
Many of our maps can now be viewed online.
Some of our local street directories can be viewed on-line.
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.
We hope to make our rate books for Manchester from 1706 to 1901 available online soon. Rate books from 1902 to 1956/1957 are available at Manchester Central Library from Spring 2014. More information about these can be found in our Rate Book Guide. We also hold Land Tax Valuation Registers for 1910.
