Description

Under the Prisons Act 1890, "No person except a Minister of the Crown, Judge of the Supreme Court, the Comptroller General, the Sheriff, a Police Magistrate, the Visiting Surgeon, or the Visiting Justice, shall, under any pretence whatever, be permitted to enter any prison, and converse with a prisoner, without a written order from the Minister, the Comptroller General, or the Visiting Justice, and then only in accordance with the rules of the prison". Prison rules also stated that permission may be given to visitors under some conditions, i.e. immediately after conviction, and only every two months.

This series consists of an alphabetical register of official and other visitors to HM Prison, Brisbane (Boggo Road) and HM Penal Establishment, St Helena, kept by the Home Secretary's Office between 1903 and 1908.

Each entry gives the name of the prisoner being visited; the prison visited - either Brisbane (BG) or St Helena (StH) - and the date of the visit/s. It is also noted, after each visit date, whether the visitor was a solicitor (S), minister of religion (M), Salvation Army officer (A), special visitor (Sp), an official (O), or an ordinary visitor (V). At the back of the volume there is a list with names of persons to whom passes were issued to visit St Helena, other than to see prisoners or perform temporary duty as warders. This register does not provide the names of visitors who came to see prisoners.
