The same numbers have been given for each diocese, thus E/2 and F/2 refer to the diocese of Bath and Wells.

Conditions Governing Access: From the Fonds: Access to the deposited records is unrestricted, and use may be made of them in publications without reference to the Trustees. Formal permission should, however, be sought for any full-length publication of material derived from them.
