We have a large collection of trade directories for Thornbury showing the names of people, their occupation and their address. We have had to remove our single searchable database of these directories because of a change in the table program we are using. Instead we have made available the individual directories listed below.
Just click on the green link to access each searchable table. We have shown the occupations and addresses as given in the original directory but we have also grouped the occupations into job categories and shown the current street names.
Note – we also have directories for several other years, so if you are looking for a particular year or period please let us know and we may be able to send you a copy of what we have.
The following Trade Directories have been included in the database collection. We have generally used only the parts of the directories that refer to Thornbury itself, although in specified instances we have included parts of the surrounding district.
