General comments
Extremely local resident.

Old Middlesex records are from Stanmore in 1930 and Ruislip in 1940. It was not included in the 1937 Hertfordshire list by Foster and the earliest record is from Bayfordbury in 1969. We have relatively few records since then, almost all from 2012 onwards.
