Scope and content

An index book recording personal information of staff members. The level of information recorded for each named staff member varies, but can include address, date of birth, father's occupation, previous work and educational history, dates of joining and leaving Jarrold's, positions held at Jarrold's, marital status, salary, details of any military service, details of accidents, and reason for leaving the company. There are also summaries of wages paid at different branches and lists of recipients for Christmas boxes. Mentions of retail occupations on these records indicate that the book relates to retail staff, although it is unclear if it also covers staff working in other divisions at the London Street site.
