Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Scan Consignments to locate the relevant volume. Indexes were in some cases created for contract registers. Where created these are found in the beginning of the volumes that they index.

  • Function / Content
    This series registered and summarised contracts let by the Local Government Authority. Contract registers were to specify the several works to be done and the materials to be furnished and the prices to be paid for the same and the times within which the said works are to be completed and the said materials to be furnished.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Each contract was allocated a unique registration number. This was often recorded as a sequential number with a year suffix, or as a running number with a letter prefix. The letter prefix indicated the area in which the work was carried out.

    Where an index was created it was generally arranged alphabetically by the surname of the contractor.
