It appears that the entire current membership was re-registered in 1897. Arranged in order of membership number (allocated roughly chronologically). Unindexed.
These registers have been digitised and are available via FindMyPast: http://search.findmypast.co.uk/search-world-Records/britain-trade-union-membership-registers
The details given for individual members include: name, age, marital status, company, grade [occupation], benefits paid to the member, remarks [most commonly about expulsion for non-payment of subscriptions] and date of registration.
As the registers are not arranged in strict chronological order, only approximate dates are given for each volume.
The sequence of membership numbers commenced by the ASRS was continued by the NUR. It is possible that some individuals listed in the NUR membership registers were actually admitted into the ASRS immediately prior to amalgamation [MSS.127/NU/OR/2/27-97].
Records of membership are also included in branch balance sheets, 1875-1912 [MSS.127/AS/2/1/1-50].
