Y x plates were originally issued by Somersetshire County Council, all x Y plates are DVLA auction sales

By close of business on 2nd January 1904 Somersetshire County Council had registered 121 cars and 64 motorcycles.


Y 1 was originally issued on 25th November 1903 to Arthur Thring of Bath and was registered to a Benz. Arthur was very involved in politics, and somehow managed to ensure he was allocated Y 1, Y 2 and Y 3. The Thring family transferred the plate from vehicle to vehicle but was allowed to lapse in the 1940's. It was revived by his daughter in law in 1953.


Y 2 was originally issued on 25th November 1903 to Arthur Thring of Bath and was registered to a Benz. At some point it was transferred to a local farmer who one day had an accident and that was the last seen of the plate.

It's seen here on a 1939 De Dion Bouton.


Y 3 was originally issued on 25th November 1903 to Arthur Thring of Bath and was registered to a Benz. It was allowed to lapse in 1906. In 1910 it was reissued to Sir George Neville who registered it to a Mercedes. It's now registered to a vintage Mercedes year unknown.


Y 6 was originally issued on 28th November 1903 to Charles Wood of Frome and registered to a Oldsmobile. At some point it was allowed to lapse and was reissued in 1914 to A Cousins.
