THE LOST LONDON STREET INDEX

                             AN INDEX OF LONDON STREET NAME CHANGES AND THOSE THAT

                                             ARE NO LONGER IN EXISTENCE OR SHOWN ON MAPS

HAVE YOU LOST A LONDON STREET or you cannot locate a Road, Street, Avenue, Mews, Terrace, Yard, Walk, or Place then try a free search of  this index courtesy of RESEARCH UK

Over the past two hundred years there are thousands of streets that have undergone a name change or have disappeared altogether and todate we have more than 3500 in our index.    

We are intending eventually to cover all areas within the London Orbital  Relief Road, (the M25  Motorway to you and me.)

NOW YOU CAN ORDER AND PAY ONLINE FOR UK BIRTH, DEATH AND MARRIAGE CERTIFICATES THROUGH RESEARCH UK

We have started to make the index searchable on line but this is a slow process so we hope you will bear with us until we have every letter of the alphabet searchable this way.


                                                       LOST LONDON STREETS

All those places marked with an * indicates that they have not been found on any recent maps but we have not made a physical check and therefore these are listed as 'Unsure'.   This does not mean that we are unsure of the location just unsure as to whether it still exists - if anyone has any confirmation either way on any shown thus then we would appreciate hearing from you.

We have made reference to locations by using the London A-Z Map References. This is because these maps are the most usual and easiest for people to obtain.
