The impact of crises on Savings Banks Institutions in the United Kingdom

​​This essay examines the impact of financial crises on savings banks institutions in the United Kingdom from the early nineteenth century to the early twenty-first century. It focuses principally on the trustee savings banks and their ancillary penny savings banks, as well as the Post Office Savings Bank. Attention is also given to building societies, savings institutions that specialised in the provision of residential mortgages for wage-earners, and to various commercial banks that targeted deposits from small savers.
