Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    There is an index by patient name at the front of both volumes.

    This series records the dates of trial leave for male and female patients.

    Details recorded include:

    patient name,
    date of admission,
    period of leave allowed,
    date returned to Asylum(or if discharged, under which particular section of the Lunacy Act the discharge was permitted),
    name of the person responsible for the patient whilst the patient was on trial leave.

    Entries are listed in chronological order by date of commencement of the trial leave. Trial leave was allocated in six and twelve month periods. Groups of patients were allowed out on trial leave at the same time. Therefore you will find a whole group of patients with the same time allocated, rather than different times for each individual patient. Leave was extended in some cases and the dates are recorded. Where further entries for trial leave for the patient are recorded reference is usually made to the next entry.

    Patients with trial leave granted between January 1910 and January 1913 have entries in both volumes. Both volumes have lists of escaped patients.
