The Morris Register is a friendly, thriving and active club for enthusiasts of Morris vehicles (cars, vans & heavier commercials) designed before 1940. (A range of vehicles in production from 1913 until, for one model, 1953). Whether you own a vehicle in the range the club covers or simply have an interest in such vehicles, you are most welcome to join us. The club is organised into a number of British Isles and Overseas sections, so no matter where you live, you should find some degree of support and details of local/regional activities.
We run a number of groups which exchange information and advice as well as sharing a wealth of experience about particular model types. Much of this is captured in a members’ only on-line forum, whilst other information is being made available through archived correspondence.
Events & Gatherings
The club organises a number of national events in the British Isles, including an annual national rally which is currently held at Warner’s Thoresby Hall, Nottinghamshire. Our regions also organise numerous events and monthly noggins (a get together for a chat, often over a drink and/or a meal).
Throughout the year we also maintain a presence at a number of national and regional car shows. Why not come and meet us for a chat. We are at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show 13-15 November 2015, The NEC, Birmingham. Come and see us on stand 4-470.

Our members can also contact club officials directly to access the services we provide for them.
“Morris Monthly”, the club’s award winning magazine, is published each month and direct mailed to members. It contains a wide range of articles and information; a mix of both current and historical. To view a copy, click here or on the magazine image.
We maintain a comprehensive website which has public and members’ areas. The Public Area provides details about the Morris Register, information on membership, regional activities (across the British Isles and overseas), information on the range of vehicles that the Register covers, an overview of our spares service, and links to sources of insurance, registration recovery (number plate advice), and a number of other motoring related organisations.
The Members Area, which is accessed by login arrangements, contains an on-line forum, a wealth of contemporary information relating to the vehicles covered by the Morris Register, including detailed mechanical specifications & drawings, service data sheets & operating manuals, sales brochures & adverts and a photo archive of in excess of 8500
photographs (including a photo gallery of members vehicles). Club produced archive material stretching back in excess of 50 years is also available. The club’s spares service which stocks a range of vehicle spares, available via an on-line shop, is also accessed via the Members’ Area.
The Register’s Spares Service aims to provide a basic service that will help members keep their Morris in good fettle and suitable for safe and enjoyable motoring. The Service is run by dedicated volunteers in their own free time. We stock a range of spares needed for the maintenance and overhaul of the most popular models. These stock items mainly comprise engine, transmission, electrical and brake parts for the Morris 8, 10 and Minor models with a limited stock of similar parts for other Morris models.
Our club shop stocks a range of clothing, publications and miscellaneous items. UK sales may be ordered and purchased on-line. It is intended to make this facility available for non-UK sales, but currently these should be made by contacting the club shop manager.
