Belgian Refugees, 1914-1920

​8,000 Belgian Refugees, who arrived in Glasgow and the neighbourhood, c. 1914, are listed in this database.

Details include, at the very least, the names, age, gender and Belgian address of each refugee. At times, the relationship between refugees, the date of arrival and arrival address are also included.

The Register

The register available to download from this page is split into two and you can use the search function on your Adobe PDF reader to look for specific entries. To assist you in reading the register we have also provided guidance notes for download.
