In the second paper on a spectroscopic survey for lambda Bootis stars, we present the spectral classifications of all program stars observed. These stars were selected on the basis of their Stromgren uvbybeta colors as lambda Bootis candidates. In total, 708 objects in six open clusters, the Orion OB1 association and the Galactic field were classified. In addition, nine serendipity non-candidates in the vicinity of our program stars as well as 15 Guide Star Catalogue stars were observed resulting in a total of 732 classified stars. The 15 objects from the Guide Star Catalogue are part of a program for the classification of apparent variable stars from the Fine Guidance Sensors of the Hubble Space Telescope. A grid of 105 MK standard as well as ``pathological'' stars guarantees a precise classification. A comparison of our spectral classification with the extensive work of Abt & Morrell (1995, Cat. J/ApJS/99/135) shows no significant differences. The derived types are 0.23±0.09 (rms error per measurement) subclasses later and 0.30±0.08 luminosity classes more luminous than those of Abt & Morrell (1995, Cat. J/ApJS/99/135)) based on a sample of 160 objects in common. The estimated errors of the means are ±0.1 subclasses. The characteristics of our sample are discussed in respect to the distribution on the sky, apparent visual magnitudes and Stromgren uvbybeta colors. Table 2 lists all observed Galactic field stars.
