Welcome to the British Banking History Society website.


Originally formed as the British Cheque Collectors Society the name was changed in 2003 to reflect the wider interest in Banking History in general, although cheques remain the prime area of interest.

The Society is dedicated to the collecting and preservation of all forms of British Banking memorabilia; the research and accurate recording of all aspects of British Banking History and the promotion of good fellowship between those who support these aims.

Within this website you will find a CATALOGUE of cheques issued by all British Banks. It is a new project which is ever growing so please tell us if you have anything not listed.
