Post Office Directories


For most of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the Post Office published a directory for Greenock. These directories were published annually and contained names and addresses, professions and many other interesting pieces of local information. The later directories also include information on Gourock.

Covering the years 1783 – 1912, the Post Office Directories digitized by the National Library of Scotland are an invaluable resource for those researching local and family history.
