Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Metropolitan District Railway Mutual Provident Society is thought to have been founded in 1887. It raised funds by subscriptions from members, donations and voluntary contributions to: relieve and maintain its members in sickness or infirmity from accident or natural causes; provided medical aid for members' wives and children; make payments on the death of members; and contribute towards members' funeral expenses. Its members were employees of the Metropolitan District Railway Company.

The Society was managed by a Secretary, Treasurer, two Auditors, two Scrutineers and a Committee of Management made up of twelve elected members. Three Trustees were elected by the Members and the Society's funds were invested in the names of these Trustees.

The Society was amalgamated into the London Electric Railway Employees' Benefit Society (Additional Section) in 1936.
