This library of mainly Crosville Timetables was made possible by the tireless work of David Cunningham who photographed individual pages (some 26,000 photos) of the timetables that are part of the collection at the The Crosville Archive in Birkenhead. This collection has been built up over a number of years from donations by members, from the company itself and from purchases made. Grateful thanks is extended to David Cunningham for this major piece of work and to the Crosville Archive Trust (as it was called at the time) for making the collection available to him.
The library of over 200 timetables is listed in date order YYYY-MM. During the 1920s the timetables mainly covered the whole of the operating area with some exceptions. From the 1930s the number of services that Crosville operated became too large for just one book and therefore the timetables were produced for different areas. In the very early 1930s the routes were split mainly between Wales and England although the services around Mold and Deeside were placed in the English section.
From 1932 the routes were split into 8 separate areas.
1 = Chester and Mold,
2 = Liverpool and the Wirral (inc. Warrington, Runcorn and Ellesmere Port),
3 = Crewe,
4 = Wrexham,
5 = Rhyl and Llandudno (inc. Denbigh and Llanrwst),
6 = Anglesey and Bangor,
7 = North Cambria (Caernarfon and Dolgellau) and
8 = South Cambria (Aberystwyth and Cardiganshire).
During the war years some of these areas were combined so the number of timetables reduced. From 1946 the number of areas reduced to 5.
1 = Chester, Mold and Crewe,
2 = Liverpool and the Wirral,
3 = Wrexham (inc. Oswestry and Corwen),
4 = Rhyl and Llandudno (inc. Denbigh and Llanrwst),
5 = Anglesey, Bangor, North Cambria and South Cambria.
