A Working list of Contributed Group Names (as they are supplied)

(For the UK Go to respective geographical County location pages for further details.) Links, underlined in blue, will eventually be added to all of these names taking your enquiry to the recorded archive data. The names below will also  eventually be transferred to the geographic location pages as further data becomes available

Individual Club pages in ORANGE are under construction. Data will be available in several formats. Firstly, by area using the links at the top and sides of this page. Secondly, directly to an archive page for a particular group by clicking on a blue underlined naming link. We are attempting to shortly introduce a system whereby contributors will be able to type in data directly to the site but this will take some time to become securely established. Meanwhile please either use the online data collection form or email material to the webmaster.
