Scottish Railway Staff Records at General Register House

The National Archives of Scotland are due to close their West Search Room in Edinburgh on Friday 25th and before that happens they are moving records to General Register House on Princes Street. Among the records already moved are Scottish railway staff records. This may interest anyone researching names on any of the railway company war memorials in Scotland.

The records of interest would be

First World War

  • BR/ CAL/15: Caledonian Railway staff records, 1867-1935
  • BR/GNS/15: Great North of Scotland Railway staff records, 1870-1929
  • BR/GSW/15:Glasgow and South Western Railway staff records, 1890s-1930s
  • BR/HR/15: Highland Railway staff records, 1878-1957
  • BR/NBR/15:North British Railway staff records, 1867-1936

Second World War

  • BR/LMS/15: London Midland and Scottish Railway staff records, 1924-1948
  • BR/LNE/15: London and North Eastern Railway staff records, 1923-1947

We have the five Scottish railway company war memorials on the Scottish War Memorial Project here:

We also have two other railway memorials:
