    This series consists of a volume which records information on the discharge of residents from Pleasant Creek Colony (VA 5118).

    The Discharge Register records the following information:

    - Discharge Number
    - Date of Death, Discharge or Removal
    - Date of last Reception
    - Admission Number (as listed in Register of Residents)
    - Name

    The last few pages of the Discharge Register list in excess of 150 discharges in March 1969. All of these residents were then admitted and registered into VPRS 18187 Register of Residents. It is thought this was due to Pleasant Creek Colony changing to Pleasant Creek Training Centre in 1969.
