I couldn't find the list either. But there is a reference to Order 21, sub-order 8 on page 11 of this PDF: http://www.henleycensus.info/articles/Woollard_1881_Classifications.pdf

I found it by going through this

https://www.le.ac.uk/eh/teach/ug/modules/eh3107/occupations.pdf

Pages 67-70 ish. 

In the olden days, I used to go to a library shelf and get an RG blue book for the 2Oth century classifications!

Thank you Gadget, I had seen that one but discounted it as it said 18 - 21 Textiles.  I have now bookmarked them both  :)
