Catalogue description Home Office: Registered Papers, Supplementary
|Title:||Home Office: Registered Papers, Supplementary|
This series comprises files on criminal and certain other subjects, separated and extracted from the main series of Home Office registered papers in HO 45 because of their sensitivity at the time of transfer. The files in HO 144 are policy files and case files relating to a particular individuals, including nationality and naturalisation.
|Note:||Naturalisation catalogue descriptions for this series were enhanced as part of a project supported by the Friends of The National Archives, 2002-2005.|
The catalogue for HO 144 is arranged in subject order within blocks of years. The subject headings used are those used by the Home Office in its registers: HO 46
