Birmingham Corporation Savings Bank -
Account Transfers to the
Birmingham Municipal Bank
 
In the period September 1st 1919 to March 31st 1920, 21,482 accounts with balances amounting to 325,411 were transferred from the wartime Birmingham Corporation Savings Bank to the replacement Birmingham Municipal Bank.
 
The following table shows which branches were the recipient of those accounts. Not surprisingly, with the Head Office of both Banks being in the same location in Edmund Street, and all the newly opened branches being in temporary premises, the majority of accounts were 'transferred' to Head Office. Many of the accounts transferred to Head Office probably did so by default - the depositors not having chosen any specific branch.
 
In this period there were three types of branch:
 
    A - Branches open on a daily basis
    B - Branches open on alternate days
    C - Evening Branches
