Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


System of arrangement

Various organisations and private individuals have deposited documents relating to Yarmouth with the Borough Archives (or with Great Yarmouth Library which has subsequently transferred them to the Archives). The deposits were given a reference number beginning Y/D.

Some of these private deposits have since been moved to other classes of record such as the Free Church Records. Where this has happened, the new location is noted. Gaps have resulted from numbers being unallotted.
Numbers not used: Y/D 51/35-38, 208, 1143, 1147-1156
