Quorn Directories

Trade directories are a valuable source of information for both the local and family historian. They can be used to find out who was running a particular business at a particular time, or perhaps help to trace when somebody left the village.

The content of trade directories varies according to the firm producing them and the age, but most contain a list of all the local trades people with their names and occupations. Two of the main publishers of trade directories, Kelly’s and Wright’s, usually also include a description of Quorn and lists of private residents.
