The Lloyd George Domesday and National Farm Surveys

The Inland Revenue Valuation Office Survey, 1910-1910 (Lloyd George Domesday) and The National Farm Survey, 1941-1943

Combined Branches’ Special Meeting

Discover what the Inland Revenue Valuation Survey and National Farm Survey were, how they can be of use to house historians, local historians and family historians; where to find records and how to use them.

Taking its nickname from the Chancellor of the time, the Domesday Survey, or the Inland Revenue Valuation Office Survey as it was officially known, is a fantastic resource for house historians, social historians, and genealogists. The National Farm Survey was undertaken as a means of improving productivity during the war. The result was an in-depth analysis of 300,000 agricultural holdings.
