You MUST use these codes when advising your Members’ Interests.They are listed in alpha order of counties, not codes, for this reason and to make them easier to find some counties and codes may appear twice (for example, “Yorkshire, North Riding” and “North Riding of Yorkshire”)

Please do not use the non-standard codes but you may come across them in the LDS 1881 GB Census Index.
