The First Day: September 1st 1919
A basic part of the Bank's early accounting system was the reporting of cash transactions, by branches to Head Office, on a daily basis. The book summarising these Daily Cash Returns at the Bank's commencement (part of which is reproduced below) was pre-printed with the names of twenty branches:
 
 
Of the four branches that opened three days a week, two opened on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays; and two (Harborne and Saltley) opened on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

Of this total of 16 branches, fifteen recorded Deposits and four recorded Repayments on that day as follows:
