The Imperial Calendars provide a valuable resource for tracing the whereabouts and careers of persons employed in various posts in the public sphere from the 1800s to 1973. As quoted in the 1809 Calendar, it contains “accurate lists of all the official departments of state, and branches of public service; the law; the church; national or commercial companies and institutions; and many additional articles of public utility.” The later calendars from the 20 century evolved to include the Civil Service List and additional departments such as Home Office and Treasury.
