Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series registers complaints made against staff employed at the various Hospitals for the Insane. The volume may have once been part of a larger series of records but it is the only volume which has been recovered to date. The volume was maintained at the Lunacy Department.

    Entries are arranged chronologically by date of the complaint. Each individual complaint is allocated a number in an annual single number sequence.

    The series records the following details:
    - number,
    - date,
    - previous complaints (references by quoting the complaint number eg 09/4 ie 4th case in 1909).
    - name,
    - office,
    - nature of complaint-usually 3-4 line description,
    - how dealt with,
    - fine (if applicable),

    There is an index by staff name at the front of the volume which gives page number references.
