The Public Curator and previous agencies were responsible for the administration of insolvency while a Trustee and a committee of inspection were appointed to audit and administer the estate of a particular insolvent. Documents in this series of files contain the name and address and business of the insolvent and the Trustee's name and address, and include correspondence and official papers relating to the financial status of the insolvent such as returns forwarded by the Trustee to the Public Curator with details of moneys received and disbursed. The files may also contain a list of creditors and debts owing, an insolvent's statement of affairs and other documents related to the adjudication and the disbursement of any assets.
