Sick and funeral funds

Scope and Content

The volumes record the funds of the Ancient Order of Foresters and Knutsford District of Foresters, and both bear the KDF crest. It is likely that when the societies merged mid-way through the volumes, they were simply stamped with the new crest rather than starting a new book.

Both volumes follow the same layout and format and have the appearance of a general cash book, with Income and Expenditure recorded in detail. One page documents income: members' contributions and entrance fees. The facing page details expenditure: sick pay (named people), district levies funeral fund and funeral pay (members are named again). See KDF/1/4 for additional information.
