National ArchivesBritish merchant seamen (1835-1840)
At this period, the foreign trade of ships plying to and from the British isles involved about 150,000 men on 15,000 ships; and the coasting trade about a quarter as many more. A large proportion of the seamen on these ships were British subjects, and so liable to be pressed for service in the Royal Navy; but there was no general register by which to identify them, so in 1835 parliament passed a Merchant Seamen's Registration Bill. Under this act a large register of British seamen was compiled, based on ships' crew lists gathered in British and Irish ports, and passed up to the registry in London. A parliamentary committee decided that the system devised did not answer the original problem, and the original register was abandoned after less than two years: the system was then restarted in this form, with a systematic attempt to attribute the seamen's (ticket) numbers, and to record successive voyages. The register records the number assigned to each man; his name; age; birthplace; quality (S = seaman, &c.); and the name and official number of his ship, with the date of the crew list (usually at the end of a voyage). Most of the men recorded were born in the British Isles, but not all. The system was still very cumbersome, because the names were amassed merely under the first two letters of surname; an attempt was made to separate out namesakes by giving the first instance of a name (a), the second (b), and so on. During 1840 this series of ledgers was abandoned, and a new set started with names grouped together by surname. BT 112/6

National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the East Surrey Regiment (1881-1901)
Each year the best soldiers of the regiment were chosen for long service and good conduct medals. This register gives rank, name, regimental number, and date of recommendation. (The sample scan is from the East Surrey regiment). The register is essentially a register of recommendations, annotated with details of the issue of the medals. Where no gratuity accompanied the medal, the entry is marked 'W. G.' (without gratuity); where, for one reason or another, the medal was not issued, the entry is marked 'N. S.' (not sanctioned) and struck through. The regiment was based on the 31st Regimental District - Kingston-on-Thames. The 1st battalion, which had returned to England from Gibraltar in 1883 embarked for India (via Gibraltar) 22 December 1884, adding "Suakin, 1885" to the regimental honours, and in 1895 was stationed at Agra. The 2nd battalion embarked for Egypt 3 October 1884, taking part in the campaign of 1885; it returned to England later that year, was moved to Guernsey in 1888; to Ireland in 1891; to Malta in 1893; and to England in 1895. In 1899 it was sent out to South Africa, being present at Colenso, Spion Kop, Vaal Krantz, Pieter's Hill, the Relief of Ladysmith, and Alleman's Nek, and adding "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to the colours.
