Quorndon Electoral Roll 1915

Electoral rolls, by definition only include those people entitled to vote. However, despite this limitation, they provide a valuable link between family names and addresses within an area, covering that sometimes difficult period after the latest released census returns. Note: 1911 is the latest census return available at the time of writing in 2013.

The 1915 Quorn Electoral Roll was produced in several sections and is reproduced here in its original order. Each section is in alphabetical order by surname. This is not always so useful as later electoral rolls, which are in street and house order.

The right to vote was restricted to one voter per householder, so would exclude adult sons living at home or heads of shared households. Perhaps surprisingly, some women appear on this electoral roll. The 1869 Municipal Franchise Act gave women ratepayers (usually single or widowed), the right to vote in County or Borough elections, (but not Parliamentary elections). It would not be until the 1918 Representation of the People Act that women generally would be able to vote, and even then, it was only women over the age of 30.
