English and Welsh asylum records online at Ancestry

Three new collections concerning English and Welsh asylums and patients are now on Ancestry (

England & Wales, Criminal Lunacy Warrant and Entry Books, 1882-1898

England, Criminal Lunatic Asylum Registers, 1820-1843

UK, Lunacy Patients Admission Registers, 1846-1912

NB: Despite the title of the last collection, I think these registers actually refer only to England and Wales, rather than the United Kingdom.


Stuck for a Christmas gift?! I have a series of genealogy books available in the UK, Australia and Canada, on Scottish, Irish and British based subject areas. Further details at Santa approves!
