Q: Are we keying business names? E.g. "Messrs Bentley & Shaw." If so, how should these be keyed?
- A: I would key business names in the given field. If Anna decides she doesn't want them the line can be easily deleted. --<a href="User:Wiedwoman">Wiedwoman</a> 15:58, 20 October 2013 (UTC) </dd>
Q: Are we keying crossed out information where there is no "replacement" information? (I have whole pages of these, where alehouses have eventually been closed down by the authorities.)
- A: Yes, key crossed out names per keying standards. --<a href="User:Wiedwoman">Wiedwoman</a> 15:58, 20 October 2013 (UTC) </dd>
Q: The instructions say to key all names on the record but image 2 doesn't seem to record the names of the justices. Are we keying every name regardless of the context or just keying those of the licencees?
- A: Yes, we are keying the names of all individuals who appear on the record. This includes Licensees, Owners, those who the license is Transferred to, and more. <a href="User:Afechter1">Afechter1</a> 06:06, 4 October 2013 (UTC) </dd>

Q: See example below. This letter (several pages)is scanned on top of the entry to which it refers. It has information regarding the owner of the licensed premises. Is the information on the letter to be keyed? And if so, how?

Q: The instructions say to key "city or borough" but I have images that show both Borough and "Situation" (which I take to mean locality, or city within a borough). Do we key only the borough, only the city, or both? --Collier Smith 18:54, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
