Local History Books

The Surrey Heath Museum (located  at the side of the council offices, Knoll Road, Camberley) stocks a comprehensive selection of books and leaflets on diverse aspects of local history, many prepared in conjunction with the Local History Club.

Also available at the Museum is a CD priced 7.50 containing SURREY HEATH CENSUSES [1841 - 1901]

This project has been carried out by Surrey Heath Local History Club between 2008 & 2010. 1,351,371 entries [64351 lines] have been keyed in by members from the village censuses of Bagshot, Bisley, Chobham, Frimley and Windlesham and include the new settlements of Yorktown and Camberley. The object was to produce a research document which would allow the analysis of the growth and development of the area known as Surrey Heath in the 19th century. To achieve this some standardisation has been necessary. Those researching individual names may gain a little more insight in a few cases from the original documents. The data has been double checked for accuracy. It is stored by parish / village per census and by individual name for the whole period in PDF files. There is also an Excel version included which can be copied and sorted for research purposes.
