Our archive collections include:

  • Annual reports and accounts
  • Capital projects records
  • Chief officer's correspondence and papers
  • Corporate policies
  • Major incidents and enquiries records
  • Minutes and papers of Boards and Committees of TfL, its predecessors, and subsidiary companies
  • Safety audit records
  • Patents and design records
  • Property deeds
  • Staff clubs and events records
  • Staff magazines
  • Staff registers

Although we hold a number of staff registers, few of them contain more than a name, badge number, work location and work start date. They rarely contain addresses or extensive information about an individual's work records, although they might sometimes contain comments or details about pay rises, but this is unusual.
