I have it as 1938, but as you say some references are for 1937.

The dates are given in square brackets [1938] and [1937] and this date does not relate to the specific date of judgement, but to the edition of the law journal in which they were published.

Wilsons & Clyde Coal Co. Ltd v English [1937] 3 All ER 628 is the report in the All England Law Report from 1937
Wilson and Clyde Coal Co Ltd v English [ 1938 ] AC 57 (HL) 141 is the report in the Appeals Cases House of Lords reports from 1938

If you want a more complete explanation of the citation systems used in UK law publications you should have a look at the Oxford Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities... available from Oxford Univerity's website

If it isn't broken, that doesn't mean you can't improve it. (Do three negatives make a positive ?)
