  2. Wandsworth Prison

    I believe the Wandsworth prison records are held by LMA. I am looking for some information on a prisoner who served time there 1908-9. I live in Australia and wondered if anyone out there would be visiting LMA and would be prepared to look up his prison record for me. Many thanks Stephanie Hume
