I would like to know the number of refugees that came to the UK from 1930 - 1947 by country of origin.

I have not been able to find a report with this information.

Would you please provide me with this information.

We said

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request about refugees who came to the UK from 1930 to 1947 by country of origin.

While we do have information about immigration to the UK and the country of last residence, these data only go back to 1975.

The Home Office may have data about refugees from the period that you specify and may be able to help you further with your enquiry. They can be contacted at

Please do not hesitate to contact us directly on if you require anything further.
