Jurisdictional Navigation[edit source]

It should be simple for users to navigate down from nation > county > parish. Please do not remove the list of parishes from this page without further discussion. Murphynw 06:26, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

London parishes[edit source]

I have been adding material to London parish pages. If others working on these pages are interested in sharing ideas, I'd be delighted to talk. I'd love to see photos/sketches of each parish church and details about parish registers and local censuses. Sample page: All Hallows, London Wall. Murphynw 04:25, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Move Request[edit source]

This question or concern has been resolved.

Would a modrkierator please move this page London, England over to London. All other English counties have already been moved to pages dropping , England I know this could be done manually by copying the code, but a move preserves the edit history and only moderators can move a page to an existing page. --Steve 21:51, July 31, 2009

Image of Big Ben / Palace of Westminster[edit source]

I know that Big Ben / Palace of Westminster is a recognisable symbol of London, but the collection of articles in the wiki about London appear to be about the City of London with Westminster covered in the Middlesex articles. As such would it more appropriate to use a different image linked with the City instead? Either this or explain to researchers the different meanings/scope attached to the term London at different times in history. --Steve (talk| contribs) 14:01, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Good point. I should've known better. Would the Tower Bridge be more accurate? Murphynw 02:55, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes an image of Tower Bridge would be more appropriate :) --Steve (talk| contribs) 09:35, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for cleaning this page up. I couldn't figure out how to get all the spacing the way I liked it. It looks great now. I'm planning on making a labeled clickable map of London's parishes as soon as I figure out how. I'd planned on having it replace the 1851 Jurisdictions screen capture.

London[edit source]

I was born in London and often when there to visit my Dads Family the Killgallon's. Over family moved away from London just after my younger Sister was born. We moved to Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire. I think the reason we moved was because there was more work for my Dad in Huntingdon.

 Ah, but there isn't anything like Pie and Mash, and Fish n Chips.

 I wonder if The Lying-in Hospital is still working thats where I was born.


There were four lying-in hospitals in London. The modern term is maternity hospital. --Steve (talk| contribs) 17:28, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
