Irish, English and Welsh school records go online

FindmyPast has added several new collections today, including school registers:

First those from England and Wales, are available in a collection entitled National School Admission Registers 1870-1914 (with variable dates for individual schools), and are accessible at, which includes a list of participating archives, though no catalogue numbers.  A list of the individual schools involved is available at

Secondly we have an Irish equivalent, the Ireland National School Registers collection, at This has 142,000 records from some National Schools in the Republic of Ireland from 1860-1920, but there is no list of schools presented that I can see, and although the digitised images state that they have come from the National Archives of Ireland, no accession numbers for the relevant collections.

Also available Surrey, Southwark, St Saviour's Grammar School Admissions 1690-1895 ( and for New South Wales in Australia, Coffs Harbour District Schools lists (1912-1984) at
