|Outstanding soldiers of the Lancashire Fusiliers
Each year the best soldiers of the regiment were chosen for long service and good conduct medals. This register gives rank, name, regimental number, and date of recommendation. (The sample scan is from the East Surrey regiment). The register is essentially a register of recommendations, annotated with details of the issue of the medals. Where no gratuity accompanied the medal, the entry is marked 'W. G.' (without gratuity); where, for one reason or another, the medal was not issued, the entry is marked 'N. S.' (not sanctioned) and struck through. The regiment was based on the 20th Regimental District - Bury. The 1st battalion returned from Malta to Ireland in January 1881, and by 1885 was serving at Fermoy; in September of that year it was moved to England; in February 1889 to Scotland; in April 1891 to Ireland and in 1895 was stationed at the Curragh. Returning to England in 1897, it was dispatched to Crete in 1901, and from there to Malta. The 2nd battalion embarked from Ireland for Bombay in 1881, and in 1885 was at Mhow, and in 1895 at Quetta. It was transferred to the Soudan in 1898, taking part in the battle of Khartoum (gaining the regimental honour "Khartoum"), before being transferred to Crete and Malta. In 1899 the 2nd battalion was moved to South Africa, where it added "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Kimberley" to the colours.

|Missing Next-of-Kin and Heirs-at-Law
The Unclaimed Money Registry and Next-of-Kin Advertisement Office of F. H. Dougal & Co., on the Strand in London, published a comprehensive 'Index to Advertisements for Next of Kin, Heirs at Law, Legatees, &c., &c., who have been Advertised for to Claim Money and Property in Great Britain and all Parts of the World; also Annuitants, Shareholders, Intestates, Testators, Missing Friends, Creditors or their Representatives, Claimants, Unclaimed and Reclaimed Dividends and Stock, Citations, Administrations, Rewards for Certificates, Wills, Advertisements, &c., Claims, Unclaimed Balances, Packages, Addresses, Parish Clerks' Notices, Foreign Intestates, &c., &c.' The original list was compiled about 1880, but from materials dating back even into the 18th century: most of the references belong to 1850 to 1880. For each entry only a name is given, sometimes with a placename added in brackets: there may be a reference number, but there is no key by which the original advertisement may be traced. The enquirer of the time had to remit £1 for a 'Full and Authentic Copy of the Original Advertisement, together with name and date of newspaper in which the same appeared'. This appendix to the list was issued in about 1905.
