As a result of several changes in ownership, the collection is extremely muddled and the original order of the records has been lost. For the most part the records are not bundled or grouped in any way and are simply loose in the boxes so an attempt has been made to summarise the main contents of each box. However, items relating to individual cases and people can be found in multiple boxes.
