F = "Full-front" cab fitted to a body mounted on what is normally a half cab layout chassis
R = Raised rear portion at rear of single-decker (sometimes known as "1½ decker")
U = Utility (Second World War austerity) specification bodywork

Numbers indicate passenger capacity:

Single number (i.e. #) indicates total seating capacity
On double deckers wo numbers separated by "/" (i.e.#/#) indicate upper deck followed by lower deck seating capacities (where known)
After the seating capacity "+" followed by a number (i.e. +#) indicates number of standing passengers permitted where this exceeds the normal permitted UK limit (8 standees).

Suffix Letter Indicates Door Position:
