    Were convicts, those in prison at the time, included in the Register?

    I don't know for sure but I think that they did.

    This is based on the fact that convicts/ prisoners are not mentioned as being an exception and one of the categories under the heading of 'role' for institutions is 'inmate'.

    Possible?
