Unfortunately the Leeds AVL has now been removed from the Leeds City Council website after it was modernised/reorganised. It's still available to look at in the reference/local history section at the main Leeds Central Library.

Hi all,

Absent Voter Lists are new to me and I was wondering where, if they exist, the list related to Bridge of Allan, Scotland would be?

Many thanks,

Andy

I digitised the greater Accrington Absent Voters list some years ago, now found through adding them to my heroes files that more the 50% have errors in them and several 100 that should be in are missing. Contrary to what we are led to believe I don't think the soldiers themselves had much to do with it, they would know where they lived and their service No. & Regmt. There are also two men who died on the Somme in 1916. Who supplied the info on Prisoners of war, who were thought to have been killed. Don't believe all you read in an AVL.
