Project Instructions This collection contains registers from the Queen's Royal West Surrey and East Surrey Regiments. The Queen's Royal West Surrey Regiment contains Enlistment Registers and WWII Honors Indexes. The East Surrey Regiment contains Enlistment Registers, Transfers In Registers, and Nominal Rolls of Officers.

We will be keying all of these regiments as a "Regimental List", but the different forms may have different fields to key. The following guidelines may be helpful:

Enlistment Registers often contain: Name, regiment number, birth place, event place, age and event date.
Transfers in Registers often contain: Name, regiment number and event date.
Nominal Rolls of Officers often contain: Name, event date and rank.
WWII Honors Indexes often contain: Name, rank, regiment number and event date.
