This small collection does not include the principal management, accounting, or production records of the company, but is made up largely of stray records, occasional correspondence and related papers. The correspondence spans the period 1825 to 1895, and is concerned with administrative issues, mainly financial. Other papers are mainly concerned with the delivery and receipt of consignments of lace, but feature other topics, including patenting arrangements (1815-1817). There is a small number of account books and stock books (1824-1857), and several miscellaneous cash books and costings records. A single register (1877-79) records the employment of youths. Deeds (non-property) span the period 1832-39, and there is a plan of the Derby factory from 1875. Photographs of John Boden (1825 and 1830) are present.
Miscellaneous material includes items relating the history of the firm. Preachers' books (1886-1934) record sermons delivered in the factory chapel. Rules for company's drum and fife band (1873) and its string band (1883) are also present.
