These lists compiled were compiled over a number of years by the now late David Stronach of West Australia, Keith Flinders of New Zealand and with the assistance of many others. Includes variants such as Stranack and Stranach, be they related or not. Over the years records made have included one spelling or several spellings for the same individual. If anyone is interested in collaborating in the research to fill in the many missing names for parents and spouses then their work will be of benefit to all Stronach researchers.

County codes

To condense the data Chapman codes have been used for all UK counties. A list of these can be found at

Births, marriages, deaths

The list has a column named "Other" and this suggests the year of another event for the person recorded. We use the word suggests as we have not researched all the families in detail.

Where you see a female listed, mainly census and death references, with a surname in brackets, e.g. Elizabeth (White), this means that Elizabeth had the surname shown before she married a Stronach.

Family Code eg, AL/CF, allows one to find siblings. You will need to have Adobe Acrobat reader on your on your PC to use its search facility (binoculars icon) to locate entries. Also you can enlarge the displayed text.  


Census information for Scotland relies heavily on transcriptions done by others, is far from complete, and as the cost of viewing the original enumerators sheets is beyond our resources may never be added to. 1911 census data for Scotland is based on the simple index, added to this is information from earlier years and civil BMD entries. Birth places and occupations for 1911 Scotland may differ from actual, but if a full residential address is shown then information is as per that census. With the data for Scotland, in particular, Ann/Anne/Annie, or Elizabeth/Lizzie/Betty, or Helen/Ellen, or Isabel,Isabella/Isobel/Isobella,  or Jane/Jean/Janet/Jessie, or Margret/Margaret/Maggie could be the same person recorded at different times. Abbreviated given names from original sources have been extended to complete ones.

1841 census data for Scotland, and England, has been modified from that transcribed to include birth places and relationships where shown for same people in later census years.

Entries for 1939 are from the 1939 Register compiled in September 1939 and used for food rationing and other purposes. It was used after WW2 for the new National Health Service and continued to be used until the 1990s. Entries for those born 1919 and who died after 1992 are redacted on the online index for 100 years after their birth. Those born after Sept 1939 are not included in the 1939 Register, obviously.

The next UK census to be opened to the public was the one taken in 1921. It will be available as from the first working day of 2022 with the entries from England and Wales transcribed and listed here sometime after. The 1931 census was lost in a fire during WW2.

Census indexes are arranged in family groups, and also individuals by given name/birth year order. Serial numbers in both these indexes are the same.
