Registration county

Registration county

A registration county was, in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, a statistical unit used for the output of census information. Registration counties were formed by grouping together the registration districts wholly or partly within a county. As registration districts crossed county boundaries, the registration counties did not coincide precisely with any other types of county.

The registration counties were used in census results from 1851 to 1911. They were in part a predecessor of the administrative counties.


33 counties are used in Scotland for land registration purposes. This process began with the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979 and started operation on 6 April 1981 in the County of Renfrew. The implementation was completed on 1 April 2003 when the final tranche of registration counties were operational.
