Good afternoon Dennis
Just had a very interesting chat with a very helpful lady at the National Archives.
Now then please bear with me...

They are not digitalised and are indeed subject of a ' page search ' request for each at 8.50 each. They will then count the number of pages per document which cost 1 odd per page to copy.
She says that given the date range(s) it could run into hundreds of pages!
She suggested that it would be better to perhaps restrict the document request to a specific date / period thus cutting down on what could be a very expensive request if all were asked for.
Is their a particular week or month that would be of interest to you Dennis?
As I said earlier once you kick off a ' page search ' request it's the fee up front and then a page count for the number of pages in the document, which as I said may be many and each page costs 1 plus to be copied and forwarded. Phew!
