ADM Index
This section will be of use to Coastguard Family Researchers as an aid to those researching Irish Coastguard material at the National Archives (formerly the Public Records Office) at Kew in London. There are a small number of ADM (Admiralty) books relating to Coastguards serving in Ireland. They refer to Details of Coastguards transferred to a Station and also of men being transferred out.

ADM Explanatory Notes
Revenue Cruisers were under Naval Control 1816-1821, but Coastguard books only began in 1824. Many men entered the Coastguard from Revenue Cruisers. The Coastguard under control of the Customs was formed from the Preventive Waterguard and the Revenue Cruisers (in Ireland) in 1822, although Irish records still often refer to 'Preventive Station' until much later.

Research Aids
