Ancestry adds England, Suffragettes Arrested, 1906-1914

This is a small database, just 1,339 names of all suffrage campaigners provided amnesty on the outbreak of the First World War. Although the document is entitled ‘Amnesty of August 1914: index of women arrested 1906-1914’ it also includes the names of 109 men.  Name, date and place of arrest are given.  For those arrested more than once details of each arrest are given. Some on the list were not identified by name and are listed under U for unknown.
Of historical interest is a collection of correspondence and memos at the end of the associated browse file.
