These records can help you trace your family tree and understand the lives of your ancestors. Order a copy of both the admission form and 'General Register' entry for £15.00. Watch our video to find out what you will receive.

For entries in this index after 1858 there is an entry for each patient in the 'Notices of Admissions by the Superintendent of the Mental Institutions' (If the admission was prior to 1858, please use the 'General Register only' search below instead). For the research fee of £15.00 we will supply the entry from the 'General Register' and also locate the more detailed admission form for you. These forms are held by the National Records of Scotland in Edinburgh. You can view an example of the admission forms here.
