Pupil Records for Christ's Hospital, Hertford

Christ's Hospital, Hertford, 1830
It is always nice to know about old school records that have survived, and Mike has emailed me to say that there is a complete admissions register of pupils entering Christ's Hospital from April 1563 to date, as well as some further records about each child admitted. These include children who were educated at Hertford. The original register up to the end of the 19th century is kept at the London Metropolitan Archives, and thereafter the register is kept at Horsham. In the Christ's Hospital museum, we have a microfilm copy of the admissions registers and other records, and our volunteers deal with queries about CH pupils which are sent to There is no specific charge for dealing with queries, but we invite donations (for the benefit of the museum), as you do on your website.

As a result I have updated the main Christ's Hospital page on this site, and also revised the answer I gave about GURR, Christ's Hospital, Hertford, 1860s.
