Notes: The title Stage and Music Hall Celebrities cannot be found on the cards - this is a title put on the set by collectors. There is a similar set of these cards put out by Wills at about the same time in Australia with oval frames.

In general, the odd numbers of these show an ad for Capstan Navy Cut Tobacco on the back, while the even numbers show an ad for Vice-Regal Mixture. Cards 21-25 and 40 have been seen with both backs.
