I do believe one of our members on here may be able to help you.  On that note how many nurses were registered in 1921 as Iíve just purchased my second GNC badge from 1921.

It really does depend on what you are trying to access? Some of the early registers have been digitalised and are available to subscribers of Ancestry.com or through some university libraries; https://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=60423

If it is a simple enquiry I may be able help as I subscribe.Please let me know

Thanks Peter for your information. I am not a member of the RCN. Do they have a fee for anyone for accessing the said Registers. I would like to research a number of registrations and I feel I need some time to look through the contents of the Registers.
Thanks once again for all you help

You may find more detail here;https://www.rcn.org.uk/library/services/family-history

The Ancestry site has a number of different payment options but it can be quite time consuming to find the information you need. Unfortunately you just missed a free trial offer which they had for Easter.If it helps you I can try looking for one example to show you the sort of listing you get?
