Transport Records Deposited in 2002


The following classified list of major archive collections acquired by British repositories during 2002 has been compiled by the Historical Manuscripts Commission. Some collections may not yet be available for research, and enquiries should be directed to the relevant repositories. The Journal of Transport History gratefully acknowledges the invaluable help of the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts in drawing up the list. The commission seeks each year to collect information relating to manuscript accessions from over 200 repositories and record offices throughout the British Isles. The information is published on the commission's Web site (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk) and in a series of thematic digests which appear in learned journals and newssheets. It is also added to the indexes to the National Register of Archives (NRA), which has over 44,000 unpublished lists and catalogues of archives available for public consultation at the National Archives, Kew, Richmond TW9 4DU. Alternatively searchers may access the indexes to the NRA and certain linked on-line catalogues via the Web site. Limited and specific enquiries can be dealt with by post or e-mail (enquiry@nationalarchives.gov.uk).

Readers should be aware that the manuscript collections noted in the following digest represent a very small part of the collected information available to the NRA. Readers should also note that dates for records in the digest are given when known, but that they are covering dates which do not necessarily indicate the presence of records for all intervening years. Records have been included in the digest regardless of whether the deposit has yet been fully catalogued, and readers are advised to check with the relevant repository as to whether this, or any other factors, may prohibit access to the documents.
