|Description||These volumes contain records of the regular collection of the total membership contribution from individual factories. Entries are arranged firm by firm, with a page for each factory. In some cases, the name of the collector for that firm is given. Most volumes also include records of the receipt of contributions from retired members of the Association. The dates of entries suggest that collections were made roughly fortnightly.|
This sequence is not complete; there are no records from July 1944 to the end of 1959.
A classification book containing records of the collection of contributions from members of the Association who worked in anchorsmith firms is also included in this sequence as the entries post-date May 1924 when the Amalgamated Society of Anchorsmiths, Shackle and Shipping Tacklemakers became part of the Chainmakers and Strikers Association.
