There are few available details of Branch Managers being in specific posts at specific dates, but a number of different sources provide some details - as specified below:
 
Committee Minutes in August 1919 detailed the appointments of the officers to be in charge of branches on the first day of business. They were given the titles of 'Branch Superintendent' or 'Clerk-in-Charge' depending on the status of the branch. At a meeting of the General Committee on October 16th 1922 it was Resolved:
 
That in future, Officers in charge of Daily Branches be designated "Branch Managers".
In general, this designation is used throughout this website.
