Lloyd’s Captains’ Registers were compiled from the record of certificates of competency issued to masters, kept by the Registrar General of shipping and seamen from 1851, in accordance with the Mercantile Marine Act 1850. The Captains Registers list for each person the name, place and year of birth; the masters certificate obtained; any other special qualification, including the steam certificate from 1874; the name and number (taken from the Mercantile navy list) of each ship; the dates of engagement and discharge as master or mate; the destination of each voyage; casualties; and special awards (e.g. for war service). For many years colour coding was used to indicate dates of engagement, discharge and casualties, and these pages are in colour.
