Directories contain a variety of information about places and the people who live in them. Where available, the extracts below include the title page of the directory, a description of West Bridgford, and a list of residents. In the later directories, the residents of West Bridgford are subsumed in those of Nottingham: in this case the street-by-street list of residents of Nottingham has been included, resulting in a large file which may take quite a while to download.
The directories are pdf files, all of which are searchable except for those marked with *.
