Notes: 1. Includes societies demutualised by 31/12/97. 2. Excludes societies demutualised by 31/12/97. 3. Excludes Bradford & Bingley. 4. Excludes Britannia. 5. Excludes Kent Reliance. Years are financial years ending from 1 February in that year to 31 January in the following year. The figures are based on the annual returns provided by all building societies in Great Britain. From 1986 figures include societies based in Northern Ireland. Prior to 1989 the figures for the number of societies are the number registered. From 1989 onwards the figures are the number of societies authorised to accept funds from the public (ie inactive societies still on the register were excluded). Before 1930 borrowers who were not also shareholders were included in the number of shareholders. Figures from 1993 onwards are on a group basis. Prior years are on a society-only basis.
