Scotland's Valuation Rolls 1905 and 1915

1905 Valuation Roll

The new records, comprising over 2.4 million indexed names and over 74,000 digital images, cover every kind of building, structure or property in Scotland which were assessed as having a rateable value in 1905.

The rolls record the names of owners, tenants and occupiers of each property, unlike the full lists of family members to be found in the censuses. The named person is usually the head of the household, but sometimes a husband and wife might be listed. Frequently, the wife is the named tenant of rented property. The rolls include all social classes so you can read about folk who lived in tenements to owners of mansions and country estates.
