Glasgow City Archives hold log books and admission registers for many Glasgow schools and a large number for schools in the west of Scotland. Information about evacuees is most likely to be found within school log books (journals kept by the head teacher). Entries in the log books usually state where and when children were evacuated, and how many were evacuated. However in most instances the names of the children evacuated are not given. Sometimes teachers who accompanied children are named. Very rarely a school admission register will include a note that a pupil was evacuated, as well as when and where they were evacuated.
Additionally the City Archives hold registers of persons evacuated to the Burgh of Oban, which includes many Glasgow children. For more details please contact the archivists.
The Archives also hold a file from the Glasgow Corporation’s Civil Defence Department about their general arrangements for the evacuation of Glasgow school children. This includes a list of Glasgow schools where children might be evacuated from, as well as guidance notes for parents about evacuation. However individual children or families that were evacuated are not named.
