These registers record the religious creed of inmates. The first three registers are arranged chronologically, the first register beginning with a list of all the inmates of the workhouse on 1 Jan 1869. From 1886, when the fourth register was started, the registers are arranged alphabetically by surname. Sometimes when a new book was started, entries from previous books were transferred, at other times they were not, so that several registers would have been in use concurrently.
