Occasionally there are annotations on the pages, including who the person was working for or apprenticed to, when the person finished their apprenticeship, and when and where they died. It is arranged alphabetically under the name of the individuals concerned; and the name of the person to whom they are apprenticed is frequently noted. There is an index in the front of these volumes. Some of the individuals from these volumes also appear in NRS 20 Salary Registers (Trust Accounts) and NRS 17141 Trust Account Ledger.
