Function / Content These volumes, which are also known as "Registered Premises Registers", provide a record of the registration of all properties and businesses required to be registered under the Health Act of 1919 (no. 3041) and subsequent legislation including the Health Act of 1958 (no. 6270). Under this legislation a range of enterprises deemed to be "offensive trades" were required to be registered annually by the municipal council. The proprietor was required to apply for registration and pay a registration fee which was stipulated in regulations drawn under the health acts. The local council could, if it chose to, inspect the premises and order any improvements to be made before it granted registration. Each entry usually gives details of the date of application for registration, name of the proprietor, the specific purpose for which the premises are used, date registration granted, town in which the premises are situated, details of the transfer of registration to another proprietor. Proprietors were required to apply for registration each year. These records have been identified as permanent under section 12.3.1 of the Public Record Office's Local Government Records General Disposal Schedule (PROS 98/01 Version 2002) Recordkeeping System Entries are arranged under the category of registration to which they relate. Within these categories, entries are arranged in numeric order by number of registration. This is also the order of date of registration.
