About this project Just like the Middlesex Criminal Registers, this project includes registers of all persons charged with indictable offences, showing the results of the trials, the sentences in case of conviction, and dates of execution of persons sentenced to death; some of the registers contain personal information respecting the prisoners. This series consists of the registers for the rest of the country.
The form types are generally laid out the same, but still handwritten so there will be variations from page to page. (That means you may have to move the highlighting boxes around to the right places.) The handwriting is generally fairly legible, but can get difficult to make out some of the letters and words. As a result, this project has an Average difficulty.
