The records in this collection have been divided into the papers of the Jarrold family and its members and the archives of the family business, Jarrold and Sons Ltd, with its related companies.

The family papers comprise papers belonging to, or associated with, prominent members of the Jarrold family, some of which relate to their involvement in the business.

The business records comprise records relating to the company's main divisions of Retail, Printing, Publishing and Office Supplies. It includes series of records such as management papers, financial and accounting records, property records, records relating to staff, and records relating to the main business of the division, such as printing or retail sales. There are also records relating to aspects of the company which were administered centrally rather than by individual division, such as shareholding or staff magazines. Although material exists on a wide range of aspects of the company, survival has been patchy and few complete series survive. There is also a small amount of material relating to minor divisions and affiliated organisations: Jarrold Wholesalers, PrePress Solutions, Software, the John Jarrold Trust and the John Jarrold Printing Museum.

Plant and machinery ledger

Inventory of printing plant and machinery held by Jarrold and Sons 1897-1904. Although the ledger appears to largely relate to the printing division of the company, the inclusion of inventories of areas such as the readers' room indicates that it could relate in part to the publishing division. Found loose inside the ledger was a schedule of insurance amounts dated 1948 and four cards dated 1951-2 with details of machinery on them.
