Home Office: Aliens Department: Aliens Personal Files
This series contains a selection of files of the Aliens Department relating to individual aliens who entered the United Kingdom after 1935.
Many pieces contain small photographs of the subjects of the files.
The Aliens Department opened a file for each individual alien. Up to 1935 these files formed part of the Home Office's main six-figure file series (see HO 45 and HO 144). After that date a new series for aliens was introduced in which the file number was allocated according to the first letter of the alien's surname and with the next available number. Six-figure files which were still live were incorporated into the new series.
Home Office, Immigration and Nationality Department, 1962-
