HOW TO LOCATE A POLICY

 


In the text each reference to an insurance policy has three components, divided by a dash e.g. 456-12.10.1844-1025623

The first group indicates the Library manuscript number and also the Volume number
The second group is the date of the polic
y
The third group is the policy number

The library’s own manuscript reference number always commences with the letters ‘Ms’ and usually covers a number of these volumes. To save space in the text the library’s ‘Ms number’ has been given a single or double letter code and this is combined with the volume number within the ‘Ms reference’ to form the first group. In volumes where policies are not arranged either in strict numerical or chronological order it is necessary also to give the page number. It is essential when requesting a volume that you give both the ‘Ms number’ and the Volume number. When ordering a copy of a ‘Sun’ policy by post, please ask for the appropriate form. Only ‘Sun’ policies can be ordered in this way. 

The coding of library ‘Ms references’ used for the group is as below.

Editors’ note: Since George Rigal prepared these notes, the records have been moved from London Guildhall Library to London Metropolitan Archives and the manuscript identification numbers have been expanded for online catalogue searching and ordering. The expanded references shown in the second column below are the ones that should now be used.
