Following the addition of the ‘Cornwall Railway Worker’ records, TheGenealogist has announced a further addition of more railway workers from other companies in England and Wales, bringing the total to nearly 1.5 million workers from one of Britain’s biggest boom industries in the 1800s.
With details on their job roles, it’s a useful insight into how our ancestors lived and worked.
The new records encompass all levels of railway worker from train driver, guard, signaller, office staff to labourers to station controllers, literally anyone involved in the functioning of the railway.
The records are all fully searchable and are a unique new resource. There’s more details at TheGenealogist
