London Committee of Deputies of British Jews
The archives of the Board of Deputies were first sorted and catalogued by a professional archivist in the 1970s under the auspices of the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts. A catalogue was produced in 1976 which included the records up to 1966. The records were retained in the custody of the Board at Woburn House until 1992 when they were transferred to the Greater London Record Office (now London Metropolitan Archives).
Further deposits of archives were made over following years to the GLRO. This catalogue is a complete list of all these deposits. The order and classification of the 1976 RCHM list has been retained with later deposits of archives integrated into its structure. A note has been made of the previous reference to each item in the catalogue in square brackets at the end of the description. A copy of the RCHM list which includes a very detailed historical introduction, is available as ACC/3121/E05/32. This catalogue also includes records from the Trades Advisory Council which were not included in the 1976 RCHM catalogue as they had already been deposited in the Public Record Office. They were transferred from there to the Greater London Record Office at the wish of the Board of Deputies in 1995.
A certain amount of weeding of the archives was been done by the staff at the Board and the RCHM in the 1970s. Very little material has been weeded at the LMA and that consists almost entirely of duplicate printed material and very trivial ephemera.
Some selected records containing very personal information have been closed under Data Protection legislation.
