The main section gives details of staff names and dates of birth, their 'designation' (probably former occupation), badge number, home address, dates of appointment and discharge, 'line' (probably name of depot were staff member was based), dates when pay was increased and 'remarks' giving reasons for leaving. Many left the service during a strike in May 1915, and others were transferred to the North Side or to a different grade of work, or enlisted in the army during World War I.
