Is there anyone that knows what sort of information would be on this record?
Many thanks!

Does the description of the series not help?

"This series contains files of the Control Office for Germany and Austria and subsequently of the Foreign Office German Section, relating to all aspects of the treatment of prisoners of war under British control, not only in the United Kingdom but in the Middle East and elsewhere. About one quarter of the series consists of files on particular prisoner of war camps and on lectures at particular camps. Also includes files of the Political Intelligence Department's Prisoner of War Division."

What is it you were hoping might be included?

If you're looking for names of individual POWs you will want to read the National Archives guidance - ... ish-hands/

The file is likely to be about the administration of the camp, although it might (possibly) contain details of individuals but I can't say without seeing the file.
