SHIPS' CREW RECORDS - BRITAIN

 

OVERVIEW

Crew lists and agreements were required for British-registered merchant ships with the Merchant Shipping Act 1835. Crew lists were a requirement twice a year for ships involved in “home trade” ie vessels operating in British waters. Agreements were created for foreign-going vessels for each voyage. Log books were not required until 1850 and became more common in the 20th century.

 

RECORDS

 

FINDMYPAST - BRITAIN, MERCHANT SEAMEN, 1835-1857

From 1835, the British government began to monitor a potential reserve of sailors for the Royal Navy, which resulted in the creation of thousands of records that identify individual seamen. The main series of records feature the ships' agreements and crew lists, from which registers of service were created. These are volumes from the National Archives' record series BT112, BT113, BT114, BT115, BT116 and BT120.

The records are searchable.
