London city directories #general

Subject: Question on London City Directories
>
I believe my grandfather was living in London England in 1901 and 1902.
I will be visiting London in the next few weeks and would like to look
him up in a City Directory. Hopefully this would be similar to a
Telephone Directory where names are listed alphabetically.

What types of directories are available, and where would I be able to
find them?

There are some directories in an upstairs room at the Family Records
Center, and many more at the London Metropolitan Archives -- both in
Islington, just behind Finsbury Town Hall; nearest tubes (subway stations)
are Angel or Farringdon

No doubt there's loads more at the Public Record Office at Kew, a little
further out >from central London. All three places are accessible by tube/
bus.

When you get to London, call the FRC at 0181 392 5300, or the LMA at 0171
332 3820 for information and directions. (Sorry, I don't have the phone
number of the PRO handy.)
