Shepherd Neame is easy to deal with. They didn't use sugar at all in their Pale Ales. That didn't take long, did it? There's nothing I can add to that.
Strong's example contains the most total sugar at 13.59%. That's only slightly above the 1952 average, which was 12.35%. Given that there were brewers, such as Guinness, which used no sugar at all, over 15% was probably typical for those brewers which did include sugar in their recipes.
The only sugar to appear multiple times is invert, shoeing up in two forms at Strong and in unspecified form at both Strong and Eldridge Pope.
Later Eldridge Pope preferred to use something called flowsweet in their beers. I've absolutely no idea what that was, other than some sort of proprietary sugar.
Wondering why the 1982 Eldridge Pope AK contained no sugar? Because it was parti-gyled with Goldie, Eldridge Pope's Barley Wine (a beer which seems to have served as a prototype for the more renowned Hardy Ale).
