Admin HistoryThe Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers was formed in 1921 when the General Union of Carpenters merged with the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters, Cabinetmakers and Joiners. It continued until 1970, when it merged with the Amalgamated Society of Painters and Decorators under the new name of the Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers and Decorators.

Further changes came later in 1970, when the Society was joined by the Association of Building Technicians and, finally, in 1971 when the Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers and Decorators combined with the Amalgamated Union of Building Trade Workers to form the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians.
Custodial HistoryThe Nottingham District records were transferred to the University of Nottingham by the Society in 1960.
DescriptionThe bulk of the records in this incomplete survival of the Society's Nottingham District archives concern financial expenditure, in cash books, levy books and benefit books. Minutes from 1931 to 1952 are also present. A benefit book (1920-1949) of the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters, Cabinetmakers and Joiners survives.
