Abbreviation query

Postby clarksclerks » Fri Feb 23, 2018 11:17 pm

Can anyone help me decipher the abbreviation for the occupation of Trainor, H. on the attached? It is from the Post Office Appointment Books, 1874, for Liverpool. I think the letters are Lr Cr but I cannot think what they might stand for. If this is 'my' Trainor, he was male and previously a policeman.

Thanks
Eileen

Agreed - a standard term for one of my rellies in the Royal Mail in the 1800s.

I think so too. I have a letter carrier listed as such in the 1874 Appointments Book.
