The first place to go to answer queries of this sort is GENUKI,
This page gives an index of places in England and Wales with the relevant registration districts:
That's probably the most important thing for your family history research.
Whether Hammersmith and Hampstead are both in Middlesex depends on the context and date. Middlesex no longer exists as an administrative entity, just a postal area. Previously they were administartively part of London County Council, prior to that they were in the County of Middlesex. Very complicated history, see the GENUKI page for Middlesex:

thanks for the help
I will do as you suggest I can see this is not going to be easy
