Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series was the name index for the company file portion of the single number series of correspondence files, although there is also the odd reference to non-company correspondence files. The index is not complete as many single number company files with later numbers are not included in the index.

    The cards provide details of the company name and address, the file number, the name of the company contact, the type of industry and any sub-files.

    Most cards are typed, except for handwritten annotations regarding secondary storage and subsequent files.

    Few cards are dated, but the odd dated annotations suggest it was in use by 1958 (although it was probably before that, as the series of company files started in 1952.) Similarly there are entries in 1976 when it is assumed the series was replaced by a name index, which covers the annual single number and multiple number series.
