This annual directory takes account of all changes in staff, sittings or courts, addresses, court code number and telephone numbers each year. Prison establishments, Crown Courts, country courts, magistrates' courts, other courts of summary jurisdiction and the Crown Prosecution Service are fully covered. Fully revised up to 1st August 1997, this edition incorporates amendments due to the reorganization of the administrative structure of the court service and also features an expanded section on Coroner's Courts. Entries and listings are alphabetical, Crown Courts within each circuit and Magistrates' Courts within counties. Updated entries retain previous information, such as former court names and codes, making it easier to backtrack queries.
