TitleMedical registers (females)
DescriptionRegisters compiled in accordance with the Rules of the Commissioners in Lunacy, 31 October 1906: 'The entries in the medical register, other than those which are duplicate entries of those in the civil register made on admission by the clerk, shall be supplied by the medical officer of every asylum, hospital, or house within three months from the date of the reception of the patient'.

The registers give date of admission, number in civil register, date of discharge, transfer or death, name, marital state, occupation, age, attack with duration and any cause, physical state and form of mental disorder; schedule of symbols used, a key to some of which is pasted in the front of NHS3/5/8/5.

From 1931 registers include the civil status number for certified, V[oluntary] or T[emporary] patients, as well as the general reference number; registers from 1937 onwards entitled 'Medical register of voluntary, temporary and certified patients' are of slightly different format and indicate occupation by symbol only.
