  • Function / Content
    This volume is the Nominal Register of Patients at the Ballarat Asylum. Patients admitted to the Asylum between May 1893 and April 1907 have their admission and discharge dates recorded in this volume.

    The Nominal Register was created to record the names of all Patients on the books of the Asylum. Both patients in residence and those out on trial leave were included. Details recorded include:

    - name of patient,
    - date of admission,
    - date of discharge/transfer/death,
    - how discharged.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The volume was self-indexed. It was arranged alphabetically by the patient's surname and then chronologically by date of admission within the alphabetical listings.
