Volume 2 of this Personal History of the Royal Greenwich Observatory consists of appendices that contain much background information and supplementary detail that would be inappropriate in the chronological narrative in Volume 1. Each appendix refers to a broad topic for the whole period and many of them give references to further information. The preface to this volume gives background information about the sources used for the narrative and about the brief forms of the references given in it. The Preface is followed by a full list of the contents of the volume.
