Our Archive's appointment records are a useful source of information for family historians. Appointment Books in archive class POST 58 provide a register of all employees from 1831 to 1956. Arranged by year of appointment and then by surname, they give date of appointment, grade and place of work. These are now searchable online via ancestry.co.uk.
Before 1831 Treasury Letters (POST 1) sometimes refer to individual appointments. These are usually indexed according to year and surname.
