The Bristol list is arranged in alphabetical order of the chassis model type, detailing the chassis model, body type, date new, original owner/fleet number/registration, last known UK operator (in the case of secondhand vehicles) and all known Irish owners and disposals. This page does not include passenger vehicles not known to have served with Irish operators, or any trucks produced by Bristol. Further data will be added as time allows, and corrections or updates to the information on these pages are also welcome. So far 1,101 vehicles have been traced, with thanks in particular to Dick Gilbert, Rob Sly, Gerry Tormey and Will Hughes for their help. Additional info has been gleaned from other websites, books, photographs etc., and it is hoped that this page will serve to be as accurate as possible a record of all Bristols in Ireland.
