Firm Lists

Singapore Companies 1904

The following list is based on the information that was contained in the website List of Qualified Jurors, Singapore, 1904 which was transcribed from the Straits Settlements Government Gazette of 21 October 1904 by Terry Foenander. That list gave the names of English speaking residents of Singapore who were qualified to serve as jurors. There are over 1360 persons on the list and for each their is mentioned their occupation, their residential address and their employer's company name.


  • The List of Qualified Jurors yielded the following 177 potential company names plus a number of schools and hotels.
  • Some 1904 company names are likely missing form the list. This would be the case if none of the employees, partners or owners appeared on the List of Qualified Jurors or if none of these people spoke English.
  • Not all firms employed the words “Company” or “Limited” in their name.
  • There were variation in some company name especially in the use of “&” or “and”. When given a choice I chose to use “&”.
  • Some names such as those of Banks are abbreviated.
