At the top of each page the name of the treasurer is recorded (until 1879 it was James Wood, then varies for the next 20 years). Amounts received consists of: contributions, entrance fees, fines, visits. Amounts paid out are savings bank, liquor, sick pay, any funeral costs or expenses. The Society appears to start paying rent in 1865.
