Bruce's Lists of London Street Name Changes - £6.99

Go to the eBook Shop Every single street and place name officially changed in the old County of London between 1857 and 1966, sorted old-to-new and new-to-old. All the changes listed on this website in a form you can keep for future reference, plus the Borough, Postal District and exact year of each change, 13,842 additional, smaller places and 20 more years.

If you have an address from the census, or a birth/baptism record that you cannot find on a modern map, look here first.

This eBook version contains the new, complete lists, an explanation of where the information came from and what it can (and cannot) tell you. There is also my aid to dating London maps and other help with finding places in London's past.

Please see the extract below for a list of the contents and some example entries.

1857-1929

Old to New

All the entries in this section follow the format:-

Old name - in alphabetical order
Metropolitan Borough and Postal Area
New name
Year the change was authorised

Please bear in mind that the 'new' name often already existed, the 'old' name being incorporated as a part, and in some cases has been changed again later.

The @ symbol indicates that there are one or more associated entries in the Appendix.

The † symbol indicates that this change appears only in one edition, not subsequently. See the Introduction for further details.

If you want to look at earlier London street names, see Elmes' Topographical Dictionary of London from 1831, Lockie's Topography of London from 1810 or Stow's Remarks on London from 1722.

If you still can't find the place you are seeking, try London Streets lost to the Blitz.

A note about the size of this eBook

This is a very large eBook. If printed it would occupy almost exactly 1,000 pages of A4. There was a prominent warning here to the effect that it might work slowly on some older eReaders. As no purchaser has yet reported this I have removed it. However, if you do experience such a problem let me know what eReader you have and I will send you a two-volume version instead. Volume 1 sorted only old-to-new and Volume 2 sorted only new-to-old. This is not quite so convenient, but splitting the book into two parts makes each work faster.
