Hi s1bgs,
The rewirable(semi-enclosed) fuse are BS3036
These will have a fuse carrier that will be marked with a coloured dot to denote the size of the fuse wire that should be installed.
BS1361 fuse are cartridge fuses assossiated to the type you find in a plug top. With again a fuse carrier much like the one above when used in CU
BS88 are more industrial and have a high breaking capacity, but are used as the main breaker at cut where your incoming supply is, this belongs to the eletrical suppliers.
