Catalogue description Registry of Shipping and Seamen: Transcripts and Transactions, Series IV, Closed Registries
|Title:||Registry of Shipping and Seamen: Transcripts and Transactions, Series IV, Closed Registries|
Duplicates of all forms entered, relating to the registry and ownership of ships removed from the British Register kept by the Registrar General of Shipping and Seamen.
A selected record within this series (BT 110/426/2) is available to download as digital microfilm.
From 1890 the transcripts and transactions ceased to be bound and were filed under the year in which the registry was closed.
As registries may be re-opened, for example when a ship is bought back from foreign ownership, papers are liable to temporary withdrawal and re-filing at a later date.
No explanation has been found as to why there are no transcripts for ships registries which both opened and closed within the year 1890.
