The India List or India Office List was published quarterly in India by the India Office for much of British rule in India. It gave the names and positions of all senior officials and officers of the India Office, the Indian Government, the Indian Army and the British Army in India. An annual version was also published giving more detail on a subset of these officials.

History

The East-India register provided complete lists of the servants (employees) of the East India Company both at home and abroad including civilians, military and marine personnel, also Europeans and mariners with interests in India, but not in the service of the Company, for a particular year. It was superceded by what was initially called The Indian army and civil service list. This later series is collectively referred to as The India list. The LDS (Mormon) Family Search Library has microfilmed editions of this from 1861 through to 1947 and these are listed in Library Catalogue under the title An East-India register and directory.

Availability

Incomplete runs are held in the British Library APAC collection (India Office Records), the Cambridge University Library (admission restricted) and elsewhere. The LDS (Mormon) Family Search Library has microfilmed editions from 1861 through to 1947 and these are listed in their Library Catalogue under the title An East-India register and directory.
