CHAIRMAN : JAMES CUDDON, Esq., of the Middle Temple, Barrister-at-Law.
Extract from the Report of the Directors for the year ended 30th November, 1886 :In the Fire Department new Insurances were effected for an aggregate amount of £6,994,418, yielding in new Premiums the sum of £10,618 128. 4d.

Seventeen Proposals for insuring £21,150 were declined, and 46 Proposals for insuring £73,180 were uncompleted in the year.

The claims under Life and Endowment Policies amounted to £46,519 3s. 6d., which amonnt, although in excess of the Claims for the year 1885, is below the expectation.
