Britain, Royal and Imperial Calendars 1767-1973
Over 1.2 million records are added to this unique collection of records of persons employed in various posts in Britain's public sphere from The National Archives.  The Royal and Imperial Calendars: contents include:

Regiment and rank if served in the military

From the 1809 Calendar, it contains "accurate lists of all the official departments of state, and branches of public service; the law; the church; national or commercial companies and institutions; and many additional articles of public utility."

The later calendars from the 20th century evolved to include the Civil Service List and additional departments such as Home Office and Treasury.

One person in my family tree is listed through his civil service career with last name, initials, department and section in which he worked and grade. His address is also given for a short while when he was Hon. Sec. of a Society.
