Scope and content

Creed Registers of Croydon Board of Guardians. Details include religious creed, with dates of admission and discharge.
Names in the volumes 1881-1903 and 1914-1930 are entered in a loosely alphabetical order; those in the three volumes 1903-1915 are entered in a rough chronological order. Where an individual entered the workhouse more than once, the format 1881-1903 allows the later admissions and discharges to be added to the first entry: from 1903-1930, however, separate entries are made for each admission. Details include religious creed, with dates of admission and discharge. The start date for each volume is the approximate date at which it appears to have begun in use. However, most of the volumes 1881-1903 and 1914-1930 record a number of earlier admissions, presumably copied from older volumes.
