Royal General Pension Society

Royal General Pension Society, 150, Oxford Street, established 1840, for granting pensions to persons in necessitous circumstances who are above 60 years of age.
Income derived from voluntary contributions.

There were, according to the last report, 27 pensioners then on the books. In consequence of a great deficiency in the income, no election of additional pensioners has taken place for some years. The business of the society is conducted at very small expense, 11 : 14 : 9, so that the pensioners derive the benefit of nearly the whole income, about 230.
