What are the Digital Archives?

The Digital Archives contain scanned images of HM Land Registry's historical 1862 Act Register. Around 2,000 individual properties were registered in England & Wales. Each registered property was given a unique reference number or 'Title Number'.

The original records are in 272 volumes, containing a mix of handwritten or typed pages made from parchment, waxed linen or paper, and printed documents and deed plans. The digital version is an exact replica of the original paper version.
