Note: The clerks of the 110 livery companies divide themselves into three groups: The Great 12; the Association of Clerks, representing all companies that have their own hall (other than the Great 12); and the Fellowship of Clerks, which all clerks are eligible to join, though it acts mainly on behalf of those whose companies do not have halls. It is these three groups who nominate the liverymen and clerks above.
