Bennetts Trade Directory 1888 Quorndon entries

Below is the Quorndon section from Bennetts trade directory for Leicestershire for 1888. This directory is much briefer than some of the others. It omits general information about the village and includes only trades people, ie it excludes the gentry, clergy, school teachers etc. The format is cheaper and there seem to be more errors than in other directories.
