  4. LOOK UP POLICE STATION ON L.E.E.R

    Hello I have recently found a section on the London England Electoral Registers (L.E.E.R). Which lists all the policemen names who were situated at a station in W.10 London. I am quite sure this is available for all stations listed in the L.E.E.R. How do I show you this particular link?
