Post Office Directory 1902 - London Northern Suburbs


Cat No.:   GB9053:

A fabulous and *incredibly* rare directory. Most larger suburbs contain a street by street directory which lists virtually every head of household by name, along with their trade. There are even people listed with an occupation such as 'clerk', 'householder' or 'jobbing gardener' so these are ordinary people in their homes, not just tradesmen at their place of work. Smaller suburbs have no street directory but instead include a list of private residents, which often runs to several pages, plus a Commercial Directory of tradesmen.

Also included is an Alphabetical Directory which lists people and their addresses, plus a separate Court Directory which also contains names and addresses. You have to get sneaky here and look for your ancestors in both the Alphabetical *and* Court sections as they will usually be in one or the other but very rarely both! The final section is a classified Trades Directory which lists types of occupation, who performed those trades and where.

The area covered is quite easy to determine as the dividing line between the Northern and Southern Suburbs is a natural one which has changed very little over the years...... the river Thames. To help determine the exact areas covered see the lists below. We have divided them into two sections, places with a street by street directory or places with a list of private residents.

This book was kindly loaned to Archive CD Books by The Public Record Office in London. Both the Northern and Southern Suburban Directories were in quite poor condition with the bindings coming away so funds from the sales of the CD's will be used to pay for them both to be rebound.
