PLEASE NOTE: BT 110/426/2 is available to download free of charge as part of the Digital Microfilm project.
From 1890 the transcripts and transactions ceased to be bound and were filed under the year in which the registry was closed.
As registries may be re-opened, for example when a ship is bought back from foreign ownership, papers are liable to temporary withdrawal and re-filing at a later date.
No explanation has been found as to why there are no transcripts for ships registries which both opened and closed within the year 1890.
