Hi Martin

Well, if you saw any friendly Americans in blue shirts helping people left, right and centre there, they were the religious maniacs you were worried about  :)

I can assure you that your fears have kept me from ever going to an LDS venue.

Well, you have been to TNA, I believe

Newspapers on microfilm (don't know dates) are at the Museum of Croydon in the Clocktower (same building as, but separate from, the Library)

First floor, head for the info desk, bear right keeping the new meeting room to your left

Aim for the books, FHC is on your left signed Family History Centre, with smiley, helpful staff  wearing blue tops

Easy  :)

Hi Liza115

All ordered for Saturday

Regarding later dates, TNA say they have

Pension records and staff lists of Excise and Inland Revenue officers (1642-1970)
Browse CUST 39 in our catalogue for pension records and staff lists of Excise and Inland Revenue officers. These records have not been indexed, so you will need to search records for the relevant years. Most of the Inland Revenue staff files are in CUST 39/235-248. There is also a staff list for 1692 in CUST 109/9.

Inland Revenue establishment lists (1869-1920)
Browse IR 147 in our catalogue for details of Inland Revenue officials. It covers staff in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Details include dates of appointment and promotion, salary, place of employment and, in some cases, date of birth.

Consult Hamís Year Book, Hamís Customs Year Book and Hamís Inland Revenue Year Book, available in major research libraries. These are indexed directories of Customs officers, Excise men and Inland Revenue officials covering 1875 to 1930. To access these records you will either need to visit us, pay for research (£) or, where you can identify a specific record reference, order a copy (£).

Customs Board minute books (1734-1885)
Browse CUST 28 in Discovery, our catalogue, for minute books of Customs officers. These do not record appointments but include details such as leave, transfers, suspensions, sackings, resignations and pensions for existing officers.

Unfortunately, because of a fire at Custom House in London in 1814, very few minute books from before 1814 have survived.

From 1839 the volumes are quarterly. They are internally indexed, but before 1849 some of them have been split into two parts, with the index in the first part.

I've not had experience with any of them though TNA add

As there is no single index of people or places that can be used to find service records your search for information may require some patience.
