The records are valuable both for the study of religious and social history. The annual reports (287LCM/3 below) give statistics and descriptions of working class life and provide an insight into the problems of economic slump, disease, overcrowding, alcoholism as well as those associated with an international port and industrial centre. They also quote extracts from agents working diaries, none of which have survived.
The archive is also a record of the social and spiritual interest of leading members of the community. Sir James Picton, Sir Donald Currie, Sir W P Hartley, Sir John Sandemann Alien MP and Samuel Smith MP were all associated with the work of the Mission at various times.
Deposited 15 October 1976 on permanent loan by the Superintendent, Rev David V Jebson (ref CML/1976-386). Records less than 30 years old (except printed material) may only be consulted with the authorisation of the Mission (Jubilee Hall, Kensington, Liverpool L7 8SN). This list is a revision of that first prepared on receipt of the records.
