Valuation Office survey maps and field books (1910-1915)
Between 1910 and 1915 the Valuation Office carried out a survey to determine the value of land for tax purposes. The ‘field books’ from the survey contain the names of property owners and occupiers, details of tenancy and the value and area covered by the property. For many properties they also show the number of rooms and how the rooms were used.
Use the Valuation Office Survey index maps (see above) to get to the field books. Consult our guide to records of the Valuation Office survey for advice on how to do this.
Working copies of the Valuation Office survey are often kept in local archives.
