Notes

Figures from this period usually included parcels-only 'stations' (probably 20 or fewer)
[1] Likely to be approximate. This total included the 'Big Four' (GWR, LMS, LNER and SR) but probably not the small number of independent 'minor lines'.
[2] Approximate figure for GWR, LMS, LNER and SR only and probably comparable with 1934.
[3] Following nationalisation most of the formerly independent lines were included in the totals from 1947, which generally reflected the position on 31 December of each year.
