Date(s): 1915-1963

Extent: 0.682m3

Scope and Content:
The Invoice Ledger and the Ledger form the central spine of the collection; all debits were recorded in the former and all credits in the latter, and the 2 Ledgers taken together reflect the financial and commercial viability of the Company. The day books were used to record all expenditures and incomes on a daily basis, the statements of expenditure were then written into the Invoice Ledger and those of income into the Ledger. 

The cash books provided a simple method for the dissection of payments and receipts and reference to the relevant entries in the Invoice Ledger and Ledger was made by the use of page numbers. 

Cash flow on a weekly basis was recorded in the weekly cash account books, but these books contain no cross references and simply record the cash totals carried forward and debited. All purchases were recorded in the Monthly Purchase Book with cross-references to the Invoice Ledger.
