Scope and Content

The volumes record orders for coal and coke, drainage pipes, cement and building materials, agricultural produce, ironmongery, household items and estate office sundries. Each book contains the counterfoils for 100 order forms, the counterfoils being numbered consecutively. The upper cover of each book carries a typewritten (manuscript from EGR14/65/21 onwards) label recording the order numbers and covering dates. Note that EGR14/65/11 was used before EGR14/65/12, probably accidentally.
