Above is a sample record from the Royal Mews series. It shows a list of employees, their dates of service and the reasons they were discharged.
The reasons range from ‘discharged for being late’, ‘drunkenness’ and ‘kept bad time’ to the slightly more alarming ‘attempted suicide cut his throat’ and ‘improper conduct to horse’.
We’re working in association with the Royal Archives to bring you these fantastic records, which make up the Royal Archives Collection.
