Trade directories

How accurate and comprehensive the trade directories were is hard to discover. The records they contain depend on how people got their names in the directories i.e. whenever a new heading was introduced it would take several years for the list to become comprehensive e.g. Chronometer was introduced as a heading in 1865 but it was not until 1871 that all chronometer makers were in the chronometer index.
