Findmypast: to 1973. Public sphere/Civil Service Imperial Calendars

Recommended Posts


There is a new database on FIndmypast (pay website) which could assist in tracing a person's career.

"Britain, Royal and Imperial Calendars 1767-1973"



The description says

“The Imperial Calendars provide a valuable resource for tracing the whereabouts and careers of persons employed in various posts in the public sphere from the 1800s to 1973. 


As quoted in the 1809 Calendar, it contains "accurate lists of all the official departments of state, and branches of public service; the law; the church; national or commercial companies and institutions; and many additional articles of public utility."


The collection comprises of the bound Imperial Calendars which are held by The National Archives. The early calendars from the 19 century contain persons serving or featuring in East India Company, Army, Royal Navy, Royal Household, the peerage; Law, the clergy, city officers, educational establishments, dockyard officers, bankers, medical dispensaries, General Post Office and customs. 


The later calendars from the 20 century evolved to include the Civil Service List and additional departments such as Home Office and Treasury.

The Imperial Calendars later evolved into the Civil Service Yearbook“
