The list of certificates issued by the Consulate should be in the Warsaw Archives of New Files. Inquiries should be sent to the following mail:

I've had some "private" responses that might be very useful. If I have any success, will report back here

That is very interesting, although we don't have a folder or any certificates, I was hoping for something like this to go on in case ours did get their paperwork and got lost over the years; ours came between 1902-1907. Hope you manage to find something and I'll keep on eye on this thread!

My paternal grandfather was born in Krakow in 1884 and came to the UK in 1900. I know it was part of Austria at that time, but in his naturalisation folder in 1923 there's a note from someone in the Home Office that he (quote) "was issued a Polish Certificate of Nationality no 1760, issued by the Polish Consul in London, on 18 August 1919" Does anyone know whether it's possible to acquire a copy of this certificate, or at least to establish it existed? His (unusual) surname was Padorca - just in case I have a relative reading this message :)
