Introduction The concept of a wreath product of permutation groups has been well documented in the literature. Kaluznin and Krasner introduced the idea in [6] in order to obtain groups with a certain universal property. Various other results were established in [6], for wreath products of finitely many groups. Wreath products with an infinite number of factors were dis- cussed in [2] and [8]. The approach used there was to write the wreath product as a union of finite wreath products, with a suitable embedding rule. Hall in [3] approached the problem of a wreath product of infinitely many permutation groups in a different manner. His construction in- volved defining the wreath product directly as a subgroup of the symmet- ric group on a suitably chosen set. The wreath product obtained was "restricted", in some sense. Moreover, Hall only considered wreath products of groups indexed by totally ordered sets. Hall used his results to construct various
