1. ADMIRALTY ESTABLISHMENTS AT HOME - REGISTERED TELEGRAPHIC ADDRESSES
(Source: "The Navy List", August 1914, pp XV-XXII)
The original list, where this has not already done, has been grouped by locations in the British Isles and also into naval activities, weapons etc. The list is assumed to cover all main home establishments. Although the information says little about the organisation of the Royal Navy, it is a helpful way to start to appreciate the scope of the Admiralty's functions and and their location in the UK (map following).
Following are a series of excellent Charts, copyright Stanford's Geographical Establishment, who no longer appear to be in existence.
It has not been possible to locate the present copyright holder.

3. CHART OF THE COMPONENTS OF THE BRITISH ADMIRALTY AND ROYAL NAVY IN 1914
(Source: "The Naval Review", Volume 4, 1914)
This chart is taken from a 1914 article, "The Science of Organisation", author not known. He uses one of the then latest theories of organisation, and identifies seven functions that are applicable to the individual man as well as the organisation:
Intellectual, the apprehension of truth; Moral - of justice; Aesthetic - of beauty; Emotional - of love; Vital - nutrition; Physical - safety of movement; Genetic - reproduction.
He applies these to such examples as an analysis of fire control, work of a torpedo lieutenant, engine room problems, as well as the structure of the Admiralty. I doubt this theory of organisation lasted very long as management science developed so quickly in succeeding years, but the resulting Admiralty chart is the most comprehensive I have discovered. It mainly lists functions and establishments rather than organisation and structure i.e. naval and civilian chain of command. Also the components sometimes fit uncomfortably within the theory's seven functions, but as a picture of the Admiralty and Royal Navy at the time, it is invaluable, and must have been a labour of love.
In the author's own words:
"Plate 3 (below - click to enlarge) is a chart of the Navy, showing an analysis of the present organisation, by the method of the science of organisation. The chart has been made as accurate as the data available would permit.
"Under intellectual is placed the Board of Admiralty and some of the departments; educational and instructional organisations, publishing departments, etc. Under moral is put Chaplain's Department, legal courts, prisons, etc. Under aesthetic comes musical organisation ; under emotional comes social and charitable institutions, prizes and testimonials, etc. Under vital is put all matters dealing with finance, constructive departments, supplies, medical department, hospitals, etc. Under physical we place political organisation, fleets and personnel. And finally under genetic is placed the recruiting organisation, and matters distinctively male, female and juvenile."
