General Guide


13: OTHER PUBLIC AUTHORITIES


This section includes district nursing associations. For public utilities (e.g. cemeteries) which were municipally owned, see Section 11 (i) and for those which were commercial concerns (e.g. gas, water and electricity undertakings) see Section 22.

Full catalogue entries will be found in our online catalogue www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/librarycatalogue (use the “Former catalogue”). To find the entries, do a Classification search for the Manuscript number given below in bold, adding leading zeroes if necessary to give the number five digits (e.g. Ms 06760or Ms 14813).

If the collection consists of a single document, it will be given in the following way in this guide: Ms 14813; if the collection consists of more than one document, the first manuscript reference number only will be given with a dash to indicate further numbers, e.g. Ms 14618-. In order to find the entries in our online catalogue, please just enter the first number in a classification search, without a dash, e.g. Ms 14618. This search will find the collection level description which shows the full range of manuscript numbers for each collection.

The catalogue is available in hard copy at the Manuscripts Section's enquiry desk.
