Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    To use this series researchers will need to know the name of the prisoner in whom they are interested and when that person was in prison.

  • Function / Content
    This series appears to have been created to allow staff at Fairlea Prison easy access to the Female Classification Files (VPRS 11927) and Individual Management of Female Prisoner File (VPRS 11897). It was created between 1982 and 1996. It is not known if any indexes existed prior to 1982.

    The entries in each book contain the prisoners number, name, date received and date discharged. The discharge entry sometimes indicates to where a particular prisoner was discharged (whether it is to another prison or the suburb in which they were to live).

  • Recordkeeping System
    Entries in this series are arranged by the first letter in the prisoners surname and then by date of reception.

    While all prisoners with a surname beginning with a certain letter are listed together they are not in strict alphabetical order as each entry was made according to the prisoners date of reception.
