Administrative / Biographical History

This Association was incorporated in 1909 and was rather different from similar bodies, in that it was divided into three spheres of influence - London, Dundee and Liverpool, each with its Secretary and Board of Directors. The objects of the Association were to regularise and control matters dealing with the purchase and sale of jute goods in the United Kingdom. The contract used conformed to that of the Calcutta Jute Fabric Shippers' Association, with some additional clauses relating to local requirements. Disputes and arbitrations were dealt with by the local Board.

The United Kingdom Jute Goods Association Ltd was not part of the A & S Henry group.
